“We are representing half of Balochistan but the government ignored our constituencies”, Malik Naseer Shahwani said. He said the present government has launched development projects through non-elected people bypassing the elected representatives.

The opposition lawmakers lamented that the provincial government has failed to address the issues faced by the masses. “The Chief Minister, Jam Kamal Khan himself has admitted lapsing of Rs. 40 bs”, Nasrullah Zarai of the PKMAP said.

The opposition members claimed that the Public Sector Development Program (PSDP) confined to government constituencies. This is a violation of the constitution, they stated.
