Quetta: Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) has tendered his resignation, media reports said on Monday.

Governor Syed Zahoor Ahemd Agha has also accepted his resignation.

The former CM in his written resignation was quoted as saying by Dawn News: “I, Jam Kamal Khan, under Article 130 (8) of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, hereby resign from the office of the Chief Minister of Balochistan today the 24th October.”

The late-evening development came after two marathon sessions of negotiations that Mr Alyani held with Senate Chairman Mir Sadiq Sanjrani and Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, the newspaper reported.

According to sources, Sanjrani and Khattak informed  Alyani about the number of MPAs who supported the rival group.  Alyani, however, agreed to step down only after he got assurance over some conditions, which include adjusting some ministers of his cabinet in the next government. They also contacted the leaders of the angry MPAs during the marathon meetings, the newspaper reported.
