Differences in the Balochistan government have been intensified as Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) members are mobilized to move a no-confidence motion against their Chief Minister Jam Kamal in the provincial assembly, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel.

Such differences intensified on Sunday when the CM withdrew the portfolio of Local Government Ministry from senior party leader Sardar Saleh Bhootani. In reaction, he became angry and started manoeuvring.

Around seven to 10 annoyed legislators of the BAP led by Sardar Saleh Bhootani started contacts and consultations with the likeminded members of the Balochistan Assembly.

Reportedly, Sardar Saleh Bhootani has succeeded in winning support of Balochistan Assembly Speaker Abdul Qadoos Bezinjo in this regard.

The BAP leadership is optimistic that leadership of the Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) Balochistan will support those bringing a no confidence motion against the CM. Sardar Saleh Bhootani said that he was not taken into confidence before withdrawing the portfolio from the chief minister.
