Number of dissenting MPAs of Balochistan would go over 40: claims Ahamad Ali


QUETTA, Jan 08 (TNS): Former advisor to Balochistan chief minister (CM) Prince Ahmed Ali has claimed that number of dissenting MPAs of Balochistan would go over 40 against CM Sanaullah Zehri.

A group of ministers addressed a press conference in the provincial capital and claimed that number of ministers who have reservations over CM Zehri leading the provincial government would rise.

Prince Ahmed Ali said that decision of the dissenting ministers would not change with Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s possible visit to Balochistan to resolve the political crisis.

Representatives of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) and Awami National Party (ANP) said that no-confidence motion is a democratic process and every MPA is entitled to bring about an in-house change.

He recalled that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had distributed sweets and made merry after dissolving government led by former chief minister Aslam Raisani.

PML-N has branded a no-confidence motion an undemocratic act now, they complained.

However, Balochistan CM Sanaullah Zehri has responded to the statements and said that claims of those standing up against the government have fallen weak as they failed to bring together 20 ministers at a dinner gathering on Sunday.
