Govt delegation meets Shahzain Bugti, seeks support for budget approval
June 26, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A government delegation again met Jamhori Watan Party (JWP) chief Shahzain Bugti to reconcile with him on Friday. The government delegation comprised of Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak, Minister for Planning Asad Umar, Minister for Energy Omar Ayub and National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri. The delegation sought the support of Shahzain Bugti for the approval of the budget from the government. Earlier, Shahzain Bugti had threatened to part ways with the government within two days if the government did not accept their demands. He had also demanded an executive order of Prime Minister Imran Khan for the acceptance of his demands. Expressing his resentment with the PTI, GDA leader Ayaz Latif Palijo said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had not fulfilled any promise. “A majority of the members want to dissociate themselves from the ruling alliance,” he added. On June 17, the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Akhtar Mengal had announced to end the alliance with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, he said that today no online classes are being held in Balochistan. “There is no 3G and 4G in Balochistan. You are talking about online. No one allows us to stand in the queue. Leave the royalty of Sui gas, we cannot smell it,” he said. Akhtar Mengal said: "I officially announce to end our alliance with the PTI. We will stay in Parliament and will keep talking about issues." He added that the PTI had signed two agreements with the party at the time of government formation in 2018. “However, the PTI did not implement a single point of the accord. If our demands were illegal then we are ready to face death. But then all those who have signed these accords should also face the same," he said. He said that justice is sold, not given, in the country. “It seems the House has been made Hyde Park corner. You are under the debt of Balochistan from head to toe. Balochistan will have to be given the equal right tomorrow, if not today,” he said.
