PTI has backed BAP govt in Balochistan: Rind

QUETTA:Parliamentary leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in Balochistan Provincial Assembly and provincial Minister for Colleges, Higher, Technical and Secondary Education, Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind has said that despite having reservations and apprehensions, PTI had backed the provincial government of Balochistan Awami Party (BAP).

Talking to media here on Sunday, Rind said, “It depends on the Assembly members of Balochistan Awami Party either to support the government of BAP or not. If majority backed the government of BAP, PTI will also support the incumbent provincial government, but, if they rejected, PTI will decide future course of action in its parliamentary party’s meeting.”

“I do not have personal differences with Chief Minister Balochistan, Jam Kamal Khan rather I tendered my resignation after a revolutionary project prepared to bring about a revolutionary change in educational sector of the province was not earmarked in the provincial PSDP for the current financial year,” he said. Rind added, “80 crore rupees has been placed at the disposal of my opponent in my constituency but Rs.80 has not been granted to me for carrying out development projects in my constituency despite being the parliamentary leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in the coalition government.”

He said that it would be in the interest of the people of the province if the issue of Balochistan was addressed through mutual understanding.
