In a meeting on Sunday night attended by the Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, Chairman Senate Mohammad Sadiq Sanjarani Speaker Balochistan Assembly Mir Jan Mohammad Jamali, Senators, MNAs, and MPAs, the party leaders expressed displeasure over the federal government’s continued neglect.
“Despite being the ally of PTI in the federation, BAP is not being given its rightful place,” a leader said in the meeting, adding that the BAP’s reservations should be presented to Prime Minister in his upcoming visit to Quetta.
They said that the BAP is wary of its unconditional support to the PTI government in the federation. “BAP’s representation is very less in the federal cabinet, “he said. “Lack of political representation in the federal cabinet is increasing the feeling of deprivation in Balochistan.”
