Former CM Jam Kamal Khan, Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind, Asghar Khan Achakzai, and Mir Zahoor Buledi had submitted a no-confidence motion against CM Bizenjo.

The Maulana stated that the decision about the no-confidence motion against the CM Balochistan would be made after internal consultation of the JUI. “We would make a decision in the interests of Balochistan and its people”, the JUI leader said.

“It was BAP’s condition to seek our support against CM Bizenjo when PDM tabled a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan”, Maulana revealed

The JUI Amir however stated that former CM Balochistan, Jam Kamal Khan and others had not consulted his party about tabling any confidence motion against Mir Quddus Bizenjo. Although, he recalled that his party had supported Mr. Bizenjo against Jam Kamal Khan since the opposition members were subjected to violence inside the Balochistan Assembly.

When asked whether the JUI would join the government, he said, “no decision yet and consultation is going on”. The religious party has eleven members in the house of 65 in the provincial assembly.
