Pak political party accused of supporting Taliban, promoting terrorism

Quetta, May 11(ANI): Six Pakistan People's Party (PPP) ministers have accused the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), their coalition partner in the government, of supporting the Taliban and promoting terrorism.

Soon after the proceedings started, Minister for Communications and PPP's Deputy Parliamentary Leader, Mir Sadiq Umrani, rose up and said that the JUI-F was spreading terrorism, and setting up and running seminaries with government funds.

Whoever criticised JUI-F ministers was either eliminated or humiliated, he said, adding that these ministers used 60 per cent of the development budget.

Umrani was supported by five other ministers, who walked out of the provincial assembly with him, and urged Balochistan's Chief Minister, Nawab Muhammad Aslam Khan Raisani, to expel JUI-F ministers from the cabinet, the Dawn reports.

However, none of the ministers who remained in the House, went out to persuade the PPP ministers to end the walkout.
