On 29th October 2015, the conference room of Quetta Press Club was jam-packed with participants. There were over 80 youth activists and people working on the subject of Youth. Abdul Baseer Khan, a civil society member, was dissecting the proposed draft of Youth Policy of Balochistan. After his two hours long eloquent presentation, in which he highlighted dozens of flaws in the policy, the officials of Youth Affairs department announced to scrap that draft.
That was the first time the draft of youth policy was publicly debated in Balochistan but it was not the last. Since the public debate of October 2015, two more drafts of youth Policy were prepared but none of them was finalized for approval.
