Pakistan: Imran Khan's aide quits cabinet, joins opposition

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 27 Mar 2022, 04:33 pm

Islamabad: Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) chief Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti, who was serving as the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant (SAPM) on Reconciliation and Harmony in Balochistan, on Sunday quit his position, giving a jolt to Imran Khan ahead of the  no-confidence motion against him.

He announced he will support the opposition party.

He tweeted: "The PTI government has not given anything for law & order in these three years but has disgraced the people of Pakistan. As a result, I have resigned from the cabinet & affiliated with the opposition for the sake of Pakistan & people of Baluchistan. @BBhuttoZardari @ImranKhanPTI."

After a meeting with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari at his residence, Bugti announced that he would support the opposition in the wake of the no-confidence motion submitted against Prime Minister Imran Khan, reports The Express Tribune.

Addressing a press conference alongside Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Bugti was quoted as saying by the newspaper that PM Imran failed to fulfill his promise of bringing development to Balochistan.

The situation in the province was precarious, he said, adding that the federal government couldn’t improve a single thing.

He further said the government did not provide money for a transmission line, blood bank, and laboratory in the province.

The Pakistani politician said he hopes that  the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will address their concerns.

Meanwhile, Imran Khan will be addressing the "Amr bil Maroof" public meeting.

Earlier in an audio message, he said, "The jalsa being held today is not the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) fight but the battle for Pakistan's future."

"Today, we are out to make Pakistan's history," he said.
