QUETTA: Parliamentary leader, Balochistan National Party (Mengal), Malik Naseer Shahwani has said present government’s policy towards opposition has not changed after the removal of the former chief minister, Jam Kamal Khan.

“Nothing changed after removal of Jam Kamal in terms of interference in opposition constituencies”, he lamented during the Balochistan Assembly session on Tuesday. The session of the assembly began here with deputy speaker Sardar Babar Musakhail in the chair.  Lawmakers from treasury and opposition benches thoroughly discussed the law and order situation, development projects, and other issues relating to the province.

“This government should announce a special package for the constituencies of opposition”, Malik Naseer Shahwani stated. He recalled that non-elected people were given funds to launch development projects in opposition constituencies. “Still there is inference in our constituencies”, Mr. Shahwani said.

It may be mentioned here that BNP Mengal had played a crucial role in removing former chief minister, Jam Kamal Khan through a no-confidence motion in October 2021.

Opposition leader, Malik Sikandar Advocate also demanded of the government to include development schemes for opposition constituencies. “We suffered for three years, now we want our rights”, he said.

During the session convened to discuss proposals for the forthcoming financial budget, CM Balochistan Mir Quddus Bizenjo and the majority of the treasury members were absent.
