The CM has gone on a spree of meetings with provincial ministers, assembly members, senators and allies.
Meanwhile, Opposition Leader in Balochistan Assembly Malik Sikandar Khan Advocate said that the government has done all undemocratic acts with the opposition for the last three years. “Tensions arose within the ruling party from May. Opposition is being discriminated at every turn. A no-confidence motion was filed on September 14. The chief minister does not have a majority. Jam Kamal s statement does not qualify to be called chief minister.”
According to the details, a meeting of angry members of BAP was held in which all the disgruntled members including Speaker Abdul Quddus Bizenjo participated.
The angry lawmakers adopted a stance that they could not work with the chief minister. “CM Jam Kamal will not be given more time and he has lost the majority,” they added.
