Lawmakers lash out at CM Bizenjo
They lashed out at the CM of Balochistan for what they called his anti-masses policies in the province. The movers of the no-trust motion asserted that the CM and his team have ruined the governance and stopped work on ongoing development projects.
“We do not want to be part of this destruction, therefore, we brought this no-confidence motion”, Jam Kamal Khan said. He said the CM had no capacity to address the issues faced by the people of Balochistan.
