Quetta (September 08, 2018): Two of the coalition partners in the Balochistan government are already at loggerheads even before the provincial set-up has been properly formed.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Balochistan president Yar Muhammad Rind claimed on Friday that Jam Kamal Khan, the provincial chief minister, seems to be “trying to make PTI Balochistan his own team”.
Rind said neither was the PTI Balochistan conferred with by the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) in governmental decisions nor was it consulted on the appointment of its member of provincial assembly (MPA) as a minister.
The BAP, however, denied all the allegations made by Rind, to which the latter said he would put all reservations and matters in front of Prime Minister and PTI chief Imran Khan to decide.Earlier, two newly inducted provincial ministers in Balochistan Cabinet took oath of their office in Quetta on Saturday.
The ministers are Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran and Mir Asad Baloch. Acting Governor Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo administered oath to them.
The department of the two ministers will be announced later.
Earlier, a 10-member cabinet of the six-party Balochistan coalition government headed by Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani took the oath on August 28.Eight out of the 10 new ministers belong to the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), one each to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and the Awami National Party (ANP).
