QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan has stepped down from his position and submitted his resignation to the Governor of Balochistan Syed Zahoor Ahmad Agha, who accepted the resignation late on Sunday. The notification was issued by Balochistan Chief Secretary Mathar Niaz Rana.
Jam Kamal tweeted: “Beside many deliberate political hindrances, I have given my utmost time and energy for the overall governance and development of Balochistan. I would rather leave respectfully and not be part of their monetary agenda and bad governance formulation.”
Earlier 16 members of the opposition filed a ‘no-trust motion’ and were carrying protests against him since June this year. The protests were led by Alyani on not allocating budgets for their constituencies. Jam Kamal Khan also resigned from the post of BAP’s president only to withdraw his decision afterwards.
