Speaking on the floor of the assembly, Khetran was of the view that the performance of every provincial department under the CM Jamal Kamal had remained poor during three-year tenure while unemployment had also spread.
He went on to say that CM Alyani took important political decisions himself without consulting the ruling party and coalition partners, adding that MPAs had tried several times to inform the CM about the damage being caused, but he ignored them completely.
Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani had reiterated that he would not tender resignation from chief ministership and will fight a no-confidence motion.
