QUETTA: In a major political development, the former Chief Minister of Balochistan and the former President of the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), Jam Kamal Khan, Senator Sarfaraz Bugti, Anwar ul Haq Kakar and others are likely to join the Pakistan Muslim League (N). Other BAP leaders including Mir Asim Kurd Gailo, Mitha Khan Kakar, Sardar Masood Luni, and Muhammad Khan Lehri are also likely to join the PML N, sources close to them told this scribe via telephone.

“This major political announcement from Balochistan is expected soon”, one of the leaders who is likely to join the PML N disclosed. He also mentioned that there were strong chances that the former BAP leaders may join the PML N after the formation of the caretaker government in the country and province.

Jam Kamal already held meetings with Maryam Nawaz and Asif Zardari

The former CM of Balochistan, Jam Kamal Khan already held meetings with PML N leader Maryam  Nawaz and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. Earlier, there were reports that the former CM may join the PPP along with other party leaders.

However, now the chances with regard to their joining the PPP appear to be bleak. Wadera Hassan Jamot who contested elections against Jam Kamal in Lasbela has already joined the PPP. Ali Hassan Zehri who is stated to be one of the close aides of Asif Ali Zardari played a crucial role in bringing Wadera Hassan Jamot closer to the PPP leader.

Bizenjo, Sanjrani, Jamali and Hashmi announce to keep the BAP intact

Negotiations are underway between the PML N and the BAP leaders in this regard, the BAP leader mentioned, giving no other details. However, he said there was a strong possibility of joining the PML N. Although, a formal breakthrough is yet to be made.
