QUETTA: Chief Minister Balochistan, Mir Quddus Bizenjo delivered a lengthy political-cum religious speech during the session of the provincial assembly. Addressing the provincial assembly session, Mr. Bizenjo said former chief ministers Jam Kamal Khan and Nawab Sanaullah Zehri were removed by Allah, not by him. “People said Quddus removed them I say Allah removed them”, he said.

“I will break the record of lengthy speeches of Jam Kamal Khan”, Mr. Bizenjo told the house. He asked all lawmakers and media men to be inside the house to listen to what he called an ‘important’ speech. “You all have to listen to me otherwise I can take any extreme step”, he asked the lawmakers from the opposition and the treasury benches.

“I am not frightened of anyone except Allah”, CM Bizenjo said

The CM defended his decisions and said that it was Allah Almighty Who empowered him to rule over the people. “I am not frightened of anyone except Allah”, he said, without naming anyone posing a threat to him. Mr. Bizenjo said that repeated stay orders from courts have affected the sanctity of this house. “I will approach the apex court against stay orders”, the CM announced.

He recalled that his own father had undermined his abilities and one day he proved to be the Chief Minister of Balochistan in 2018. “They say I sleep a lot and they have to think why all political parties are supporting me”, he said.

Defending his decisions, the Chief Minister stated that his government’s steps were for the welfare of the people and for the promotion of democratic institutions. He said despite all odds, his government struck a better deal about the Reko Diq gold and copper project. He expressed his determination to protect the rights of the people of Balochistan.
