Chief Minister stayed, other minister gave resignation in Balochistan
Balochistan, Pakistan: The Chief Minister of Balochistan has refused to step down from his position after which a group of disgruntled ministers, advisers and parliamentary secretaries in Balochistan have submitted their resignation. The act of ministers have deepned the political crises in Balochistan.
Those who resigned were Minister for Finance Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, Minister for Food Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran, Minister for Social Welfare Mir Asad Baloch, advisers to the CM Akbar Askani and Mohammad Khan Lehri, parliamentary secretaries Bushra Rind, Mahjabeen Sheeran, Lala Rashid Baloch and Sikander Umrani.
Most of the members of the angry group belong to the ruling Balochistan Awami Party (BAP).
This comes after Alyani refused to give in to their demand for his resignation.
Mir Buledi said if the chief minister did not step down, then the group would submit a no-confidence motion against him in the next two days.
Despite Balochistan being rich in minerals and natural resources, it is Pakistan’s poorest province and regularly ranks at the bottom of the country’s socioeconomic indicators on healthcare, education, and population welfare.
