QUETTA: People of Awaran have urged the government to expedite the reconstruction work in the district severely damaged by the earthquake two years ago.

A meeting held here on Sunday reviewed progress on development projects in the district.

The meeting was informed that work on the projects and rehabilitation of earthquake survivors was moving at a slow pace. They accused government officers supervising the projects of not performing their duty as most of them were not present in the district and their absence was badly affecting work.

The quake struck Awaran and parts of Kech district on Sept 23 and 28, 2013.

Civil and military officers present in the meeting assured the representatives of the district that work on development projects would be accelerated.

The meeting was attended among others by Commander of Southern Command Lt Gen Aamir Riaz.
