Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani on Thursday called on Balochistan National Party (BNP-Mengal) chief Sardar Akhtar Mengal after the latter parted ways with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) a day earlier.
Speaking to the media after the meeting, Akhter Mengal said that although Sadiq Sanjrani was not part of the ruling, he called on him as a coalition partner of the incumbent government and chairman of Senate. “The Senate chairman wanted to know the reasons for our decision to part ways with the federal government,” he said.
The BNP-Mengal leader said that he had asked him to ask the government as to why it did not implement the agreement between the two parties, signed when they joined the federal coalition. “It is the government that should respond if it has implemented any part of the agreement,” Akhtar Mengal said while divulging details of the meeting.
