Former Balochistan CM rejects PM’s offer to become adviser


Former Balochistan chief minister Dr Abdul Malik Baloch has declined an offer by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to become his adviser, a post which is equivalent to the portfolio of a federal minister.

National Party Chairman Hasil Bizenjo told a private television channel on Saturday that Dr Malik had been offered three different posts but he had turned down the prime minister’s offer. “We are keeping a close eye on Sanaullah Zehri’s government in the province,” he said.

Bizenjo said that his party had requested the prime minister to ensure implementation of the Murree Accord – a power-sharing formula agreed with the ruling PML-N after the 2013 general elections. “We met the prime minister and made a request to enforce the Murree Agreement,”” he said.
