Balochistan Chief Minister Jama Kamal met Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on Thursday to discuss the no-trust motion moved against him in the provincial assembly, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to the media after meeting the prime minister, Jam Kamal said the no-trust motion against him was bound to fail.

The defiant chief minister announced not to resign, saying the next three or four days would be very important.

“I will face the no-confidence motion and it will fail,” he said and added “The governor will call the assembly session, maybe in next three-four days.”

Earlier, Jam Kamal apprised the prime minister about the political situation in Balochistan. He also informed the PM about the meetings with rebel MPAs and allies, but the focus was on the numbers game, said the sources.

Balochistan Governor Zahoor Agha had also met Prime Minister Imran Khan yesterday (Wednesday) to defuse tension in the province.

Meanwhile, in a tweet, the chief minister has refuted reports that he has resigned from his post. 

He has said that few people are involved in spreading these rumours, and that there is no truth in them.

In another development, Spokesman for the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) Sardar Abdur Rehman Khetran has accused CM Kamal of ‘horse trading’. “Jam Kamal has reached out to me through my son whom he has offered a ministry of his choice,” Khetran said, and added, “The chief minister does not have the courage to directly approach me.” 

He further said that he and his family were no ‘beggars’ that they would Jam Kamal for any favour.   

He made it clear that he and other members of his group were determined to oust CM Kamal.
