Suspended chief minister of Balochistan Nawab Aslam Raisani sent his resignation to Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani on Tuesday, Express News reported.

Sources told Express News that government and opposition parties of the Balochistan assembly were protesting against the imposition of governor rule and suspension of the assemblies. Some quarters in the government though had reportedly proposed that if Riasani resigns as chief minsiter, the government will restore the assemblies and a new leader of the house could be elected.

In view of this, Raisani reportedly sent his resignation to regional Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazal chief Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani. Shirani's party had initiated talks with with political parties for support to vote against the governor’s rule, calling it an undemocratic step of the Pakistan Peoples Party-led government.

The federal government had invoked imposed governor rule in mid January after terrorists executed multiple bomb blasts in capital Quetta, killing over 100 people in a single day in what was the single bloodiest day of terror in the country.

Good riddance to this jahil. Let's hope people of Balochistan see through their kabaili "leaders" and vote in some educated Baloch in next elections.
