GWADAR, A QUARTER CENTURY ITCH. China has finally exposed the corrupt drama being played by our politicians since 1991when the premier NS visited Gwadar. Like a Mughal king he ordered construction of Gwadar port without feasibility study. China provided huge loan and work to its companies. Since I had visited Gwadar many times and being convinced that it could not be fit as a commery port, requested for a copy of any feasibility report. I was informed by the ministry that no such report existed. But up to 2014 more than Rs.100 billion had been spent when a new mantra CPEC was started. Now China has realized that Gwadar is not commercially feasible and as per daily Dawn December 2 repot a train carrying 500 ton goods for Pakistan has been launched from Kunming to Karachi via Guangzhou port. The sole swallow of spring of the Khunjrab Gwadar route in October last proved to be the last. But how much borrowed money has been sunk and eaten away in massive corruption is anybody’s guess. Once again the judiciary of Pakistan is on trial because no other agency will probe the scam.
