Syed Ali Shah :

Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) angry members submitted a no-confidence motion against chief minister Jam Kamal Khan. “14 lawmakers submitted a no-confidence motion against CM Balochistan”, Zahoor Buledi, the Finance Minister told a crowded press conference on Monday evening. Former Chief Minister and the Chief Organizer of the BAP, Jan Muhammad Jamali also flanked the angry BAP members on the occasion of the press conference.

Two lawmakers from the Balochistan National Party (Awami) and a member of Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) also joined the ranks of BAP angry members. “We had given time to the CM to leave in a respectable way”, Mr. Buledi stated. However, the CM failed to do so, he noted.

Differences surfaced within the ruling party on September  16

Joint opposition had submitted a no-confidence motion against  Chief Minister Balochistan on September 16 this year. However, serious differences erupted within the ruling political party in the aftermath submission of a no-confidence motion against the CM Jam Kamal. Eleven members including Sardar Saleh Bhootani, Zahoor Buledi, Speaker Balochistan Assembly Qudoos Bizenjo, Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran, Bushra Rind, Laila Tareen of the BAP parted their ways with the incumbent CM.

“Jam Kamal lost majority”, BAP angry members

The angry members demanded of the CM to step down since what they claim he lost the majority in the house. Moreover, Jam Kamal rejected the angry members’ demand and visited their houses to end the protest. “The CM has no choice except resignation”, Asad Baloch of the BNP (A) told reporters. He claimed within a week the new chief executive would replace the incumbent CM.

Sardar Khetran thus suggested the CM step down what he called in an honorable way to avoid humiliation. “We respect Jam Kamal Alyani and he should step down in a respectable way”, Sardar Khetran stated. There was no immediate response from the Chief Minister and the Spokesman government of Balochistan regarding the latest move of the angry members.
