In a significant move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given his approval for staring radio programmes in Balochi language, according to reports in the local media.
As per the report, the national public radio broadcaster, All India Radio, has been asked to start radio programme in Balochi, spoken in parts of Pakistan.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has given the approval to start AIR programme in Balochi language,” ANI reported today.
Strategic experts said the move will help the people living in Balochistan province of Pakistan and other areas to get fully updated with the latest developments in the sub-continent and also enable them to listen to PM’s ‘Maan ki Baat’.
The PM in his Independence Day speech had raked the issue of human rights violations in Balochistan, Gilgit and Pak-occupied Kashmir after the people from these areas requested India to intervene in the matter.
“In the last few days the way the people of Balochistan, Gilgit, from Pak occupied Kashmir have thanked me, it is the honour of 1.25 billion people of India. I thank those people from Balochistan, Gilgit and Pak occupied Kashmir,” the PM had said in his speech.
On Monday, the activists of the UK-based Baloch and Sindhi groups had protested against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and human rights violations outside the Chinese embassy in London.
The protestors shouted slogans like “Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Balochistan” and “Kadam badhao Modiji hum tumhare saath hain”.
