QUETTA: Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) leader Akhtar Hussain Langove, who is the Chairman of the Balochistan Assembly Public Accounts Committee (PAC), has said that his party has no intention to oust the provincial government, but its lack of seriousness would result in a no-confidence move.

Speaking to the media on Sunday, Langove said that the current rulers had failed to carry out development work in the province. “There is this fear that 75 per cent of the development budget will lapse and the blame for it lies with the provincial government,” he said.

Replying to a query, he said that in his role as chairman of PAC, it was his responsibility to ensure that the provincial budget is spent in a transparent manner and to identify instances of wastage or leakage of money meant for the people and their facilities.

“BNP-M always raises its voice for the rights of Balochistan. We have even stood up against the centre for the due rights of Balochistan,” he said, adding that a no-confidence move in the current atmosphere was a serious possibility.
