A no-confidence motion against Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan was tabled in the Balochistan Assembly on Wednesday as of the 65 lawmakers present in the assembly, 33 backed the vote of no confidence.

According to the report, BAP spokesperson Abdul Rehman Khetran presented the no-confidence motion before the assembly. Addressing the session, Khetran demanded the release

of the five missing lawmakers with immediate effect and said that the assembly has lost its confidence in Kamal.

“We demand Jam Kamal immediately step down from the post of the chief minister,” Khetran said.

“Due to his poor governance, the province had to witness hopelessness, disrepute, and unemployment, while the performance of different departments was also adversely affected.”

Khetran further said that CM Kamal, assuming that he is the wisest of all, had been taking all decisions related to the province on his own.

“Running important matters without consultation has caused irreparable damage to the province,” Khetran maintained, adding that owing to that, assembly members demand Jam Kamal step down from his post.

Leader of the Opposition in Balochistan Assembly Malik Sikandar Advocate, while expressing his views, said that the post of the chief executive is very important as it requires the incumbent to work tirelessly for the welfare of the people.

“The chief executive is also required to solve the problems of the masses while being on the frontline,” Sikandar said, adding that the incumbent is also expected to protect the national exchequer.

“The incumbent must also be able to utilise the national exchequer for the welfare of the masses as per a sound strategy.

The responsibility of protecting the constitutional and legal rights of the people is also included in the duties of the chief executive,” Sikandar said.
