Balochistan crisis: CM Jam Kamal meets PM Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD: Balochistan chief minister Jam Kamal on Thursday called on Prime Minister Imran Khan as the disgruntled members of his Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) refuse to budge.

During the meeting, the matters of mutual interest including political crisis in the province were discussed. The Balochistan chief minister also apprised the premier about his contacts with the disgruntled members of the assembly.

CM Balochistan has also called on Chief Election Commissioner and Secretory Election Commission and told them that he is still the president of the party and appointment of Zahoor Ahmed Buledi as acting president of Balochistan Awami Party is illegal.

On the other hand, BAP spokesman Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran has alleged Balochistan Chief Minister of horse trading.

In a statement, the BAP spokesman said that Jam Kamal had sent him an offer of providing any ministry to his son if he pledges support. The situation is getting out of control. Jam Kamal has to leave his post now, he added.

On Tuesday, Balochistan Governor Syed Zahoor Agha also met with Prime Minister Imran Khan over the no-confidence motion tabled against Chief Minister Jam Kamal. The governor discussed the political developments in Balochistan and would decide on summoning the Balochistan Assembly session after consultations in Islamabad.

Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak also held a meeting with the Balochistan interim president Zahoor Buledi and other Balochistan MPAs in Islamabad and discussed the recent political crisis in Balochistan.
