Kamal refuses to resign, opposition claims 40 members for no-confidence
Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Saturday denied to accept any option and refused to resign in a meeting with Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani and Defense Minister Pervez Khattak.
On the other hand, opposition members including Nawab Sanaullah Zehri held a press conference with other annoyed legislators and claimed to have 40 votes for a succession of the no-confidence motion.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Parliamentary Leader in Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri addressing the media said that his party had decided to support the opposition against the sitting CM Jam Kamal.
Zehri suggested to Jam Kamal that he should resign with honour because being sticky with the chief ministership was against his respect. He said enemies of today could be friends of tomorrow in politics.
While the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) sources said that Sadiq Sanjrani and Pervez Khattak held a meeting with Jam Kamal in presence of some of the BAP senators and senior leaders.
The bigwigs of the ruling PTI discussed several options with CM Jam Kamal but he did not agree with them on any option and suggestion from the government.
Sanjrani and Khattak also held meetings with the annoyed leaders of the BAP and the PTI but failed as they also denied accepting CM Jam Kamal at any cost.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazlur Rehman group (JUI-F) central secretary Senator Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidari has also reached Quetta and held a meeting with Speaker Abdul Quddus Bizenjo at his residence.
The Balochistan Assembly Speaker Bizenjo also welcomed PPP leader Zehri at Quetta airport and requested him to support the opposition against CM Jam Kamal in a no-confidence motion on Monday.
Voting on the no-confidence motion against CM Jam Kamal would be held on Monday.
