    Jam Kamal Khan sworn in as Balochistan's 16th chief minister

    Jam Kamal Khan was sworn in as the Balochistan chief minister (CM) on Sunday in a ceremony held at the Governor House in Quetta, making him the 16th leader of the Balochistan Assembly.

    Muhammad Khan Achakzai administered the oath as Balochistan governor in a ceremony attended by the provincial assembly speaker, Mir Abdul Qudoos Biznjo; deputy speaker, Sardar Babar Mushakhel; and other elected members of the provincial assembly.

    Also in attendance were ministers from the caretaker cabinet, tribal elders and high-ranking officials.

    "An educated Balochistan" is the vision of the newly-elected chief minister, who has in the past served as minister for state as well as district nazim of Lasbela.

    In the 2013 general elections, Jam Kamal was elected Member of the National Assembly (MNA) from NA-270 Lasbela-cum-Awaran. He also served as minister for state till 2018.

    In 2018, Jam Kamal helped form the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) and was elected its first president.

    He hails from a well-regarded tribe of Balochistan. His maternal grandfather is Khan Mir Ahmad Yar Khan, the last Khan of Kalat, when it was still a semi-autonomous state in British India.

    His paternal grandfather is Jam Ghulam Qadir, the last Jam of Lasbela — the title given to rulers when Lasbela was a princely state. As the ruler of a princely state, Jam Qadir was the first to declare his decision to join Pakistan.

    BAP are a party filled with electable sardars from PML-N and PML-Q. I don't have high expectations from them, but for the sake of Balochistan, let's hope for the best. Perhaps PTI in federal government will help bring about change.

    PTI nominates Dr Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai as Governor of Balochistan

    The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) finalised the name of Dr Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai as the Governor of Balochistan after Prime Minister Imran Khan formally sanctioned his name following a party meeting on Saturday, DawnNewsTV reported.

    Dr Ameer Jogezai is a paediatrician by profession, said to have more than 30 years experience in the field of paediatric medicine. He has also served as the Registrar in Bolan Medical College, Quetta.

    It is pertinent to mention that in 2015 the National Accountability Bureau initiated an inquiry against Dr Ameer Jogezai, the then the chief executive officer of Kidney Centre, Quetta.

    The accountability watchdog had said that Jogezai was allegedly involved in embezzlement in the procurement of medical equipment and misappropriation of funds released for the Kidney Centre that caused a loss of Rs61 million to the national exchequer. According to DawnNewsTV, the inquiry is still underway.

    Dr Ameer Jogezai's elder brother Sardar Gul Mohammad Khan Jogezai has also served as the Balochistan governor from 1991 to 1994.

    Following the July 25 general elections, a six-party alliance comprising Balochistan Awami Party, Awami National Party, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Hazara Democratic Party, Balochistan National Party-Awami and Jamhoori Watan Party formed the government in Balochistan.

    CM Kamal pledges to equip police with modern technology

    QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan has vowed to equip the police force with modern technology in order to enhance their performance in fighting terrorism and eradicating crime.

    Chairing a session regarding the performance and challenges faced by the Balochistan police on Saturday, the chief minister said sacrifices rendered by the police force have resulted in peace in the province.

    The session continued for five long hours where high-ups of the police department were also present and gave a detailed briefing to the chief minister regarding the performance of police, law and order, terrorism, crime and their welfare needs.

    Chief Minister Kamal expressed his contentment over the performance of police force, saying use of technology would promote pro-masses attitude, accountability and improve the force’s performance.

    Kamal said, “Request for special grant shall be put forth before Prime Minister Imran Khan to provide all modern facilities to the Balochistan police.”

    He said along with the modern facilities, funds would also be provided to the police for residential facilities, adding that the police stations would be computerised.

    Praising the preparation of the five-year reform project of police, the CM said, “The government will make all possible efforts for the implementation of all the clauses included in the police reform plan.” The assistance to the families of the martyred policemen would continue, he added.

    “Incentives will also be provided to the police personnel who exhibit better performance,” said Kamal.

    The CM said policies that benefit the masses should be introduced, vowing that his government would strengthen institutions and promote merit.

    He also praised Balochistan Inspector General of Police Mohsin Hassan Butt’s suggestion of establishing reconciliatory committees at all police stations across the province, saying that approval for this suggestion would be taken from the provincial cabinet and it would be implemented.

    “Such a move will have people solve their disputes within the framework of the law through negotiations and it will also reduce pressure on the police force,” he added.

    Kamal also approved the ongoing recruitment process in the police department and advised to make new recruitment purely on merit.

    The CM stressed the need of changing the “thana culture” and making the police a pro-masses force. He also urged to minimise the distance between police and the masses in order to improve confidence of the masses in the force.

    Directions were issued to the authorities to improve their investigation methods and the capability of investigation officers.
    Expressing his displeasure over the delay in establishment of Traffic Engineering Bureau in Quetta, Kamal directed the authorities to remove the hurdles in the way of the project to make its completion a reality at the earliest.

    In his briefing, Balochistan IG told the CM that as many as 399 police personnel and officers had been martyred since 2013 in Balochistan and it was due to their sacrifices that peace was established in Balochistan.

    10-member Balochistan cabinet sworn in

    QUETTA: A 10-member cabinet of the six-party Balochistan coalition government headed by Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani took the oath on Monday.

    Governor Mohammad Khan Achakzai administrated the oath to the ministers at a ceremony attended by CM Alyani, Chief Secretary Dr Nazeer Ahmed, MPAs and senior officials at Governor House.

    Eight out of the 10 new ministers belong to the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), one each to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and the Awami National Party (ANP).

    The ministers include Mohammad Saleh Bhootani, Mir Mohammad Arif Mohammad Hasni, Sarfaraz Chakar Domki, Tariq Khan Magsi, Mir Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, Mir Ziaullah Langove, Saleem Ahmed Khosa and Noor Mohammad Domar (BAP), Mir Nasibullah Khan Marri (PTI) and Engineer Zamarak Khan Piralizai (ANP).


    Saleh Bhootani is former caretaker chief minister and the senior most parliamentarian. He has been elected to the Balochistan Assembly eight times since 1985.

    Mir Ziaullah Langove, Mir Mohammad Arif Mohammad Hasni, Mir Nasibullah Marri and Noor Mohammad Domar reached the provincial assembly for the first time.

    Metha Khan Kakar has joined the cabinet as the chief minister’s adviser with the status of a minister. Mr Kakar was elected from Zhob as an independent candidate by defeating Jaffar Khan Mandokhel of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q, who had been elected an MPA for seven times from the same constituency.

    According to the Constitution, the Balochistan cabinet, including the chief minister, can consist of 15 ministers in a house of 65 members. Five advisers could also be appointed.

    Yar Mohammad Rind, PTI’s provincial head, did not take the oath as minister on Monday. Sources said that four ministers and four advisers would be inducted into the cabinet later.

    Sources said the chief minister was facing difficulties in selecting his cabinet as coalition partners, including his own party members, were demanding ministries. The portfolios of ministers and adviser would be announced later

    While welcoming his cabinet colleagues after the oath-taking ceremony, Chief Minister Alyani expressed the hope that they would make the vision of development successful.

    He said the masses had high hopes with the new government and cabinet members had to make all-out efforts to come up to their expectations. The ministers would have to focus all their energies on the development of the province, he added.

    Mr Alyani said that the cabinet would have to work as a team to meet the challenges faced by the country

    He said: “Problems in Balochistan are many, while the resources are limited, so the members should adopt simplicity.” He said the first meeting of the cabinet would be held on Tuesday.

    In light of the Supreme Court’s order, the cabinet was now empowered to take decisions on all the provincial matters, he added.

    ‘Education, health emergency’ in Balochistan

    QUETTA: The Balochis*tan government has decided to impose health and education emergency in the province and bring maximum entities in tax net through widening the working of the Balochistan Revenue Autho*rity to increase provincial financial resources for reducing deficit of the current budget.

    These decisions were made in the maiden meeting of the six-party alliance coalition’s cabinet here on Tuesday, which lasted for several hours with Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani in the Chair.

    The newly inducted minister, Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, announced the decisions after the cabinet meeting. He said that the cabinet reviewed law and order situation and development process in the province and took various decisions for improvement in performance of different departments.

    He said that the cabinet decided to approach the federal government to seek special grant to enable the provincial government to overcome the budget deficit of the current year.

    “Balochistan is facing deficit of Rs62 billion amid a severe financial crisis,” the minister said.

    It was further decided that the federal government would be approached for “removing the hurdles in getting Balochistan’s share in the federal resources”.

    He said that the cabinet resolved to continue recruitment on non-teaching vacancies and to induct teachers in the education department on contract bases “with the name of educator”.

    “Recruitment will be made on around 10,000 vacant posts of teaching and non-teaching staff in the education department,” he said.

    According to the minister, it was also decided in the meeting that vacant posts of the Balochistan Public Service Commission will be filled soon.

    The cabinet also approved in principle allocation of Rs1bn for providing drinking water and building washrooms in 10,000 schools across the province as thousands of schools, including those of girls, are lacking the facilities.

    Minister Buledi said that the cabinet also approved the setting up of permanent teachers’ management committees in all schools in the province to ensure that teachers and students regularly attend the institutes.

    “The cabinet has declared that establishing boys’ and girls’ schools in every union council of the province is mandatory,” he sad and added that it also decided to provide funds required to complete under-construction residential and cadet colleges in the province.

    “Subject specialists will be appointed in all colleges of Balochistan,” the minister said with a feeling of pride in his tone.

    Discussing health affairs, the minister said, the cabinet decided to take strict action against absentee doctors who were not performing duty on the places of their appointment. It was decided that an apex committee headed by the chief minister would be set up in the health department to make decisions about devolution of powers in the department up to lower level.

    The cabinet also approved requirement of doctors on contract bases for primary health care.

    If the federal government does release extra funds for Balochistan, there needs to be accountability of where those funds are used. Federal government should work with the provincial government, draw out a plan, and make sure each and every rupee is spent where it's meant to be. We can't let them off the hook, BAP is filled with these electable sardars who have been switching between PML-N, PML-Q, etc, they can't be trusted to deliver.
