Opposition parties in Balochistan writes a letter to President of Pakistan
As a constitutional head, the President can address our apprehensions: Malik Sikandar Advocate
QUETTA: Members of opposition benches in Balochistan Assembly have written a letter to President Arif Alvi with regard to what they claim denial of their constitutional and parliamentary rights by the present government in the province.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Malik Sikandar Advocate, the opposition leader in Balochistan Assembly lashed out at the chief minister Balochistan, Jam Kamal Khan, and said that the government has failed to address the issues of the masses. Malik Naseer Shahwani of Balochistan National Party (Mengal), Nasrullah Zarai of PKMAP and other legislators were also present on the occasion.
The opposition leader however informed that they have sent a letter comprising 19 points to the President in this regard. As a constitutional head of the country, the President should play his role in giving us our legal, constitutional, and parliamentary rights in Balochistan, the opposition leader mentioned.
“Crashing the opposition is the sole objective of the present government”, he lamented. The opposition leader demanded of the chief minister Jam Kamal Khan to step down for what he claims the letter’s failure to address the issues of the masses.
Since the establishment of the coronavirus committee, no meeting has been held so far, the opposition leader said. He said the opposition benches were ready to work with the government, but then it was always ignored in all key decisions about the province.
