Washuk is city on the arid area of Balochis-tan. It is situated in south-west along with Iran border and was parted from distract Kharan in Masharraf rule of time by the provincial authorities when they were forming more district in Balochistan province. After the getting status of district this area fate is same as it was. The MNA and MPA got failed to make this area people lively and overreached to bring some changes in Washuk city. The leaders of Washuk who are presently ruling are constant winner since 2000. The mentioned so called leaders in their time of rule could not bring any kind of improvements or made development in theirs constituency. The discussed area people are deprived of the fundamental rights, for instance, health, education, clean drinking water and electricity. The city of Washuk is underdeveloped in terms of facilities and people are facing very hardships and difficulties due to disregarding by authorities to the area.
Among all, the education is an augmented problem and its provision to area’s children is equal to none or some areas of Rakhshan are inadequately facilitated.

The absence of educational institutes pushed the area in ancient age. The far-flung areas people have no concept of education for their offspring in this modern age. The elected MPA and MNA are also not fulfilling their duties to provide education facilities to their areas people.
The scarcity of water is a great challenge and it causes waste of time and energies. The area people and women travel very long distance to fetch water for household. The people fetch water from ponds and rare water supply schemes from long distance laden on domesticated animals. Most of the time, they could not get hygienic but use contaminated water which causes grim diseases in area people.
The government authorities including the elected MPA and MNA should take prompt notice of negligence
