QUETTA: Former senior minister of Balochistan, Mir Zahoor Buledi has lashed out at Shehbaz Gill in presence of Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) ministers during the provincial assembly session on Friday evening.
“I strongly condemn Gill’s remarks about national institutions”, Mr. Buledi who belongs to the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) told the house. The session of the Balochistan Assembly resumed here with acting speaker Sardar Babar Musakhail in the chair.
BAP and PTI are in an alliance in Balochistan. Although, the latter has parted ways with the former in the federal government. Members from the treasury and opposition spoke about issues relating to Balochistan and underlined the need for a solution.
“None can tolerate PTI leader’s statement”
“None can tolerate PTI leader’s statement”, the former senior minister of Balochistan said. As he stood at his seat, the PTI ministers including Naseebullah Marri and Mobeen Khilji left the house.
However, Mr. Marri again appeared in the house and wanted to respond to Mr. Buledi’s remarks about his party’s leader. Buledi pointed out the lack of quorum and the chair subsequently adjourned the session as most members from the treasury and opposition were absent from the session.
