QUETTA: Two more ministers were inducted into the Balochistan cabinet on Thursday.

Governor retired Justice Amanullah Yasinzai administrated the oath to parliamentary leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf in the Balochistan Assembly Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind and Metha Khan Kakar at a simple but impressive ceremony held in Governor House.

Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan also attended the oath-taking ceremony.

Mr Rind was elected a member of provincial assembly from PB-17 Kachhi.

Metha Khan Kakar, who was working as adviser to the chief minister on livestock, has been promoted as full minister in the cabinet.

Mr Kakar had contested the election as an independent candidate from PB-2 Zhob, defeating many old parliamentarians including Sheikh Jaffar Khan Mandokhel of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid and Jamal Shah of the PML-N, who is a former speaker of the Balochistan Assembly. Later, he joined the ruling Balochistan Awami Party.
