Chief Minister (CM) of Balochistan Jam Kamal Khan took to Twitter to clarify that the news of his resignation was not true. “I have not resigned and such rumors may not spread.”

People on Twitter were sharing news of Jam Kamal’s resignation.

On October 20, a no-trust motion against Jam Kamal was tabled in the provincial assembly as several lawmakers sought to oust the provincial chief from office.


Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) spokesperson Abdul Rehman Khetran presented the no-confidence motion before the assembly. Of the 65 lawmakers present in the assembly, 33 backed the vote of no confidence against CM Kamal.


Kamal on Friday night said that out of the 41 members of the Balochistan Assembly, 80 per cent stand with him in opposition to the no-confidence motion moved against him two days back.

Taking to Twitter, CM Kamal said 80 per cent of coalition lawmakers in the provincial assembly — including from BAP, PTI, ANP, ADP, JWP, PPP, Azad, and BNP-A — support him.
