The opposition in the Balochistan Assembly on Monday turned down an invitation for a meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, who is scheduled to visit Quetta later in the day in an effort to garner support for beleaguered Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri, who currently faces a vote of no-confidence in the Balochistan Assembly.
“We have decided not to meet the Prime Minister”, Leader of the Opposition Maulana Abdul Wasey said while speaking to DawnNews, explaining that he and his followers could not “ride two boats.”
A bigger blow for Zehri and the flailing PML-N was the refusal of some of its own members to meet the chief executive.
“We are at the point of no return,” Mir Sarfaraz Bugti, the former home minister for Balochistan, told DawnNews.
“I have a good relationship with the prime minister, but this is a political decision,” Bugti added.
