QUETTA - Political parties in Balochistan have welcomed Supreme Court’s ruling on Balochistan law and order case which stated that the provincial government had lost its constitutional authority as it failed to provide security to the people.

Balochistan National Party (BNP-Mengal) Acting President Dr Jahanzaib Jamaldini said that the verdict was a clear indication that the government had lost credibility to rule in the province.

“Balochistan Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani must resigned,” he said, adding that Rehman Malik did not turn up at the Balochistan Assembly session, showing  the federal government was not interested to resolve the issues of Balochistan.

Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PKMAP) Balochistan President Usman Kakar said that Raisani’s government had broken all the records of corruption since it took the charge. “Kidnapping for ransom has become a lucrative business in the province. No development work was done in the past four and half year,” he said, urging the Supreme Court to take notice of alleged corruption made by the Balochistan government

President National Party Dr Malik Baloch said that the present government had miserably failed to come up with the expectations of people and people were feeling insecure. “If the government can’t deliver its constitutional responsibilities, it has no right to rule” he said.

Hazara Democratic Party Chairman Abdul Kahliq Hazara said that more than 800 Shias were killed in sectarian attacks. “No killer has been arrested by the government,” he added.

He said that Raisani’s cabinet had lost its constitutional position owing to its poor performance, adding that taking vote of confidence from the assembly had no value in such circumstance.
