Quality Education Minister Jan Ali Changezi was stripped of his cabinet post on Thursday. Changezi, a leader of the PPP, had earlier blamed the provincial government for its “failure to stop the killing of Hazaras”.

Talking to the media, Changhezi said that he was informed in Islamabad that he had been relieved of his post. He said that he had told Chief Minister Aslam Raisani that it was alarming that every day five to six Hazara people were being killed and the government should resign as it had failed to control the situation.

“It is my duty to raise the voice for the people of my constituency,” he remarked. “I took a principled stance not to attend the special session of Balochistan Assembly that reposed confidence in Raisani,” he said.
