QUETTA: Jamiat ul Ulema e Islam (JUI) rejected the invitation of Chief Minister Balochistan, Mir Quddus Bizenjo for joining the provincial government. This was announced by JUI F Balochistan Amir, Maulana Abdul Wasey while addressing a press conference on Monday evening.

Opposition leader in Balochistan Assembly, Malik Sikandar Advocate and other party leaders were also present on the occasion. “We have decided in principle to reject CM Balochistan’s offer”, Maulana Abdul Wasey told a crowded press conference.

He said the Chief Minister was not giving portfolios as per the presence and support of the religious party in the Balochistan Assembly. “JUI F will not make any compromise over governance”, he said. From now onward, we will intensify our campaign against bad governance in Balochistan, the Maulana mentioned.

Maulana Wasey said his lawmakers would raise voices against what he called the sale of government jobs and development projects in the province. “Our party would not be silent now”, the Maulana warned.

This announcement on behalf of the religious party has come two weeks after CM Bizenjo invited JUI to join the government. Mr. Bizenjo and Maulana Wasey held four meetings to reach a consensus with regard to the implementation of the charter of demand given by the religious party for joining the government. However, no breakthrough was made in the negotiations.
