PM directs to implement 6pc job quota for Balochistan in federal depts
ISLAMABAD: In the latest development to pacify a former coalition partner, Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M), Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday directed the federal ministries to implement six percent job quota reserved for the Balochistan province.
The directives issued from the Prime Minister Office (PMO) to all federal ministers and departments said that the Prime Minister has expressed his grave concern over non–implementation of the job quota. “It should be implemented strictly in all ministries and government departments,” it said. The PMO also summoned a record of all vacant posts on the reserved seats for Balochistan within 30 days to ensure that recruitments are made on it.
It is pertinent to mention here BNP-M leader Akhtar Mengal on June 17 announced to part ways with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government after remaining part of the coalition for around 2 years.
On the next day of the BNP-M’s announcement to quit the federal government coalition, it was decided to reach out to the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) to address their grievances. - TLTP
