Addressing a press conference at his residence here on Monday, he said that he had been pointing out time and again the incompetence of the provincial government, chief minister, the worsening law and order situation and the rampant corruption in the government quarters.
He said that while issuing the interim order over the law and order situation in the province, Chief Justice also notified his reservations. “My words are unambiguous. The provincial government has failed to establish its writ in the province and the loss of human lives on daily basis is a clear example of it.” Addressing the Chief Secretary Balochistan, other secretaries and governmental machinery, he said that after the order of the Supreme Court, the provincial government stood illegitimate and unconstitutional and the orders of the C.M Balochistan carried no constitutional and legal weight. “Therefore, no orders of the CM should be followed,” Mr Umrani maintained. He was of the view that if secretaries followed the CM Balochistan directives after SC interim order, it would be considered as a crime and the followers of such orders would have to bear burden of contempt of court.
He demanded of the federal government to ask the Governor Balochistan, who is the representative of the federal government in the province, to call the session of Balochistan Assembly for the election of new leader of the house. “Incumbent government has meted out injustices and revengeful acts to the masses of the province” he alleged.
Responding to a query, he said that the provincial assembly existed, however, the government had lost it writ after the interim order of Supreme Court.
To another question, he said that he had been vocal on the floor of the assembly and outside it against injustices and would standby truth ever. Yet to another query, he said that 1 million people were affected by the recent floods in Naseerabad division but C.M did not even pay a visit to the flood affectees as C.M Balochistan has made Islamabad the campus of CM House Balochistan. Clearing his position, he claimed thathe had taken no privileges from the government for the past 4 and half years. “The three security guards given by government were also taken back as a punishment for speaking truth,” Mr Umrani concluded.
