QUETTA: In a recent directive, Chief Minister of Balochistan, Mir Sarfraz Bugti, has emphasized the critical need for accountability and responsiveness to public concerns, urging all government members to actively engage with the populace and address their grievances.

“As elected representatives, it is our solemn duty to listen to the people’s problems and work tirelessly to resolve them,” stated Chief Minister Bugti. “We have a mandate to serve the public and restore their faith in the state and its institutions.”

Jattak’s Inappropriate Behavior Caused An Outcry on Social Media

Chief Minister Bugti’s remarks come in the wake of a recidivism case involving Ali Madad Jattak, a member of the provincial assembly from the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and a professor at the University of Balochistan. This incident has highlighted broader issues of governance and accountability within the province, prompting Chief Minister Bugti to seek an apology from Jattak on behalf of the female professor, who was subjected to aggressive and inappropriate language.

“Where mistakes have been made, the government stands ready to offer sincere apologies to the people,” affirmed Chief Minister Bugti. “Our commitment lies in service and improvement, with a firm rejection of any malice or wrongdoing.”

Chief Minister Bugti also emphasized the significant role of women in Pakistani politics, paying tribute to leaders like Nusrat Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto Shaheed within the PPP.

CM Calls For Accountability And Financial Discipline

In addressing systemic challenges faced by educational institutions, Chief Minister Bugti pledged to tackle financial crises plaguing universities, including the University of Balochistan, while ensuring accountability for any financial irregularities.

“The presence of ‘ghost employees’ within Jamia Balochistan is deeply concerning, and we are determined to eradicate such malpractices,” emphasized Chief Minister Bugti. “No entity, whether governmental or independent, should be exempt from scrutiny and accountability.”

As Balochistan continues its journey towards progress and development, Chief Minister Bugti’s steadfast commitment to transparency and accountability remains crucial in fostering trust between the government and its citizens.
