The statement fuelled widespread speculations on social media about ignoring Balochistan in CPEC’s development. It is however important to look at the facts and ascertain if these speculations hold any merit.

Coventry City have reportedly signed former Crystal Palace wonderkid Reise Allasani. The 22-year-old from Dulwich Hamlet is a former England youth international and scored two goals in seven games for the national side. The versatile forward usually plays as a secondary striker but can operate on the right and left wing.

The burden of rising business rates bills and ever-increasing rents, coupled with soaring employment costs and pressure from online retailers and out-of-town shopping centres, are hitting city businesses hard.

They are: Create fairer business rates bills for high streets and beyond. Build an easy and simple system for businesses to appeal rates bills.
