The uncertain political situation still embroils Balochistan as there are rumours doing rounds on the social media claiming that Chief Minister Jam Kamal Alyani has tendered his resignation while the provincial government spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani vehemently denied the reports, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday. 

The spokesperson tweeted: “The news about the resignation of Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal is not true.”

Jam Kamal Alyani dashed to Islamabad from Quetta on Friday on board a special plane to hold meetings with the government officials in view of the no-trust move tabled against him in the provincial assembly on Oct 20.

Sources told 24News TV channel that 34 members of the Balochistan Assembly were staying at the Assembly Speaker Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo’s home in Quetta where they were gifted shawls by their host.  

Furthermore, they added, these members of the assembly were also keeping their contacts with other members of the assembly in a bid to thwart the no-confidence move. 

Only three days ago, the no-confidence motion had been tabled in the Balochistan Assembly against beleaguered Jam Kamal.

The motion was moved by Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) leader Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran. 

Assembly Speaker Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, who was presiding over the session, said that 33 members of the House were in favour of moving the no-confidence motion in the assembly. 

Mr Khetran had said that CM Kamal had no right to stick to power. He must step down, he added. He alleged that five of their members including Akbar Askani, Lala Rasheed, Bushra Rind, Mah Jabeen and Laila Tarin could not reach the assembly. He said they were missing.
