Coalition coalition member National Assembly Aslam Bhootani has strongly protested the appointment of Javed Jabbar as a member of the National Finance Commission (NFC) in Balochistan.
Announcing to go to court against the appointment of Javed Jabbar, Member National Assembly Aslam Bhootani said that Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal did not find any person to represent the province in a population of 13 million.
Aslam Bhootani says that Javed Jabbar’s nomination in NFC is an insult to the people of Balochistan. Is the message being given that no one in Balochistan is eligible to become a member of NFC?
He asked what Javed Jabbar knows about the objective situation in Balochistan.
Asking the President to withdraw the name of Javed Jabbar from Balochistan in the NFC, Aslam Bhootani said that Amanullah Kanrani, a well-known lawyer in the court, would pursue his case.
It may be recalled that the federal government had reconstituted the 10th NFC yesterday, which was also approved by President Dr Arif Ali.
As finance minister, Prime Minister Imran Khan will head the commission, while in the prime minister’s absence, the finance adviser will chair the commission.
The Finance Ministers of the four provinces will also be included in the National Finance Commission as members, while the Chief Minister of Balochistan has included Javed Jabbar as a member of Balochistan.
