QUETTA: President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi while accepting the resignation of Justice (R) Amanullah Khan Yasinzai here on Wed 7th of July, 2021, appointed PTI’s Syed Zahoor Ahmed Agha as the new Balochistan Governor.

Earlier, PM Imran Khan had, by means of a correspondence, asked Amanullah Khan Yasinzai to resign: “It has been a pleasure [working] with you, striving for the creation of a welfare state, and especially looking after the people of the province of Balochistan. However, given the current political situation, dexterity and deftness are needed at this juncture for a delicate balancing act to simultaneously ensure political inclusion and fulfillment of our commitment towards the people of Pakistan. Above in view, I intend to appoint a new governor in Balochistan and would, therefore, request you to resign. This, of course, does not in any way reflect adversely on your competence or performance. It is just that the transformed political challenges Pakistan faces at present require, I believe, a change.”

Meanwhile, PM Imran Khan has appointed JWP Chief MNA Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti as SAPM on Reconciliation and Harmony in Balochistan: “The Prime Minister has been pleased to appoint Nawabzada Shah­zain Bugti MNA as Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Reconciliation and Harmony in Balochistan, with immediate effect. He shall hold the status of Federal Minister,” the Cabinet Division, in a notification, said held. It may be noted that Shahzain Bugti, who was elected from NA-259 (Dera Bugti), is an ally of PTI-led coalition Federal Government.

It is pertinent to mention here that just a couple of days ago Govt. has stated that all disgruntled Baloch, accept those associated with Indian agencies, would be approached for negotiations. PM Imran Khan maintained the insurgents might be upset with the state due to some past grievances or India might have used them to spread terror in Pakistan.Prime Minister Imran Khan, regretting past rulers’ persistent negligence towards Balochistan province, on Monday assured that the fed. government would enhance its contribution for the development of the province every year.

Earlier, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the security institutions successfully broke down the Indian terrorist network in Balochistan and added many involved in the subversive activities had been identified. Information Minister expressed the hope that the law and order situation in Balochistan would further improve in the near future.

He said that work had been initiated on the plan to hold talks with disgruntled nationalist leaders of Baluchistan and added there would be no parleys with those who had contacts with India and were involved in subversive activities.  He expressed the optimism that Balochistan would soon emerge as a center of peace and said it would be a big boost for the China Pakistani Economic Corridor as well. | YouTube Channel
