Opposition parties in the Balochistan Assembly have filed a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan.
At the end of the Balochistan Assembly session on Tuesday, members of the opposition parties filed a no-confidence motion against the Chief Minister with the Secretary Assembly.
Among those who submitted the motion were Nasrullah Zira, a member of the Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PKMAP), Malik Naseer Shahwani of the Balochistan National Party (BNP) and Younis Aziz Zehri, a member of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI). The no-confidence motion was signed by 16 members of the opposition coalition.
The opposition has cited Jam Kamal Khan as one of the reasons for the movement, saying that the performance of the Chief Minister in the last three years has been unsatisfactory.
According to the opposition, the current government has increased unrest in the province. People are having trouble finding employment. However, poor governance is affecting the performance of institutions.
The no-confidence motion alleges that the Balochistan Chief Minister, in violation of Articles 37 and 38 of the Constitution, presented an unjust, unequal and biased development budget which deliberately created backwardness and deprivation in some areas. went.
The opposition has accused the Chief Minister that Jam Kamal Khan has shown a lack of seriousness on the issues of constitutional and fundamental rights of Balochistan in the federation, which has led to a crisis of power, gas and water shortage in the province.
After filing a no-confidence motion in the Balochistan Assembly, opposition members told the media that they had the support of the required members, including some members of the government, to make the motion a success.
Opposition leaders have said that after the motion was moved, not only should the Chief Minister leave the Secretariat morally, but also stop administrative matters with appointments and transfers.
Talking to VOA on the no-confidence motion against the Chief Minister of Balochistan, Rasheed Baloch, a journalist and analyst overseeing parliamentary politics in Balochistan, said that a no-confidence motion had been filed against the Chief Minister before. But this time the opposition is very confident.
According to Rashid Baloch, this time the situation is different. Chief Minister Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) members Sardar Saleh Bhootani and Akbar Askani are not happy. Similarly, there are other people in the party who are angry with Jam Kamal Khan.
He said that not only BAP but also the allies of the government were watching to see whose weight was heavier. If the opposition succeeds in meeting the numbers, the ruling coalition parties will also support the opposition.
Rashid Baloch thinks that the Chief Minister has a few days. That is why they have started trying to persuade the angry members.
On the other hand, Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan in a statement on social media on the current situation said that he does not care about the no-confidence motion. If the party and its allies are with them, then the opposition movement does not matter.
The Chief Minister has said that on the day when the majority of these parties and allies expressed no confidence, he would resign himself.
According to him, if he is not with the party and allies, he will not have the right to be the Speaker of the House.
Observers believe that opposition parties, including the Balochistan National Party, the Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, have deliberately filed a no-confidence motion against the chief minister. The opposition may give the chief minister a difficult time.
On the other hand, the Chief Minister has started persuading allies and angry party members to thwart the movement.
