South Punjab Subaa Mahaaz leaders may join PTI


LAHORE: The lawmakers from PMLN who defected party and made an independent South Punjab Subaa Mahaaz may join PTI .

A delegation of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will meet leaders from south Punjab today who have defected from the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz as part of their demand to have a separate province.

The PTI delegation is expected to be led by Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the party's senior leader and MNA from Multan.

Following the meeting, leaders of both sides are expected to address a joint press conference.

Last Monday, eight PML-N lawmakers, including six MNAs and two MPAs, parted ways with the ruling party and announced the launch of a mass movement — *Junoobi Punjab Suba Mahaaz *— to make southern Punjab a separate province.

The PTI has supported the demand of a new province, which jolted the ruling party.
