Tareen assures Mengal of removing all reservations of coalition partner

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader Jehangir Tareen on Sunday made telephonic contact with Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) chief Akhtar Mengal.

According to details, the PTI leader, during a telephonic conversation, assured the BNP-M chief of removing all reservations.

In August 2018, PTI had formed an alliance with BNP-M after signing a six-point memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish a federal government after winning the general elections. However, cracks emerged in the alliance as BNP-M leader Sanaullah Baloch announced last week to review its alliance with the PTI as the partner did not support its candidate in Senate by-elections.

Sources said that during the telephonic conversation, Mengal asked Tareen that BNP-M was only seeking implementation on the six-point MoU signed after 2018 polls and not any ministry. Tareen assured the BNP-M chief that all reservations of the coalition partner will be removed.

In response, the BNP-M chief formed a four-member committee comprising Senator Jahanzeb Jamaldin, Agha Hassan Baloch, Sana Baloch and Haji Lashkari to hold talks with the ruling political party. BNP-M chief is also in contact with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Affairs Naeemul Haque to remove differences, the sources added.
