PML-Q Minister Suggests Quitting Ruling Coalition

  • 19

A minister belonging to PML-Q Tariq Bashir Cheema has hinted at parting ways with the ruling PTI, saying doing so is not a crime when the situation is worsening and not improving.

According to Cheema, it is easier to leave a government than to join it, as in the former case, “you simply have to leave the ministry as opposed to accepting it.” The minister issued these remarks when asked during a TV program if they are being consulted or discredited and why the ruling party lacks performance, Jang reported. In this scenario, Cheema said it’s an open possibility to part ways with the government as it’s ‘not a crime.’

On June 18, Balochistan National Party (BNP) leader Nawab Akhtar Mengal announced to distance himself from the PTI government’s coalition, saying the latter had not implemented the agreements between the two sides. “I formally announce on the floor of the National Assembly a separation from the federal government,” he had announced during his speech on the budget debate.

“We supported the last budget in spite of the fact that it was rejected by the opposition parties,” he had said while recalling the support to the coalition to elect the President, Prime Minister, Speaker, and the Deputy Speaker. “But, what did we get in return.”
