QUETTA: Speaker Balochistan Assembly Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo has given an inkling to step down from his post.

According to details, after some consultation with his aides, speaker of the provincial assembly will tender his resignation to Governor Balochistan Justice Ritired Amanullah KhanYasinzai.

Sources privy to the matter informed that Bizenjo was aiming for funds and other political gains under the pretext of his resignation announcement.

Further, the speaker wished to employ people of his choice on the position of chief minister’s special assistant, sources added.

On contrary, the leader of Balochistan Awami Party complained that he had been sidelined as a speaker and a member of his own party on every other matter.

“As a member of the provincial assembly, I will be able to serve my people and the province in a far better way,” he said, adding that by retaining the post of a speaker, “I do not want to be a burden on Balochistan.”

Moreover, he announced to hold a press conference on the matter very soon. Former chief minister of Balochistan reiterated that designations did not mean anything to him and he believes in serving the public.

It is worth mentioning that on August 16, Abdul Quddus Bizenjo was a joint candidate of Balochistan Awami Party and six other parties for the speaker-ship of Balochistan Assembly. NNI
