Give us one more chance and we will make new province, Shahbaz Sharif's olive branch to South Punjab


LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif vowed to create new provinces if the party is given mandate by the public. He also gave credit to his party for governance and service delivery.

In addition to registering his efforts made in South Punjab for social uplift of a common man, he also tweeted today, “Taking governance to the doorstep of the people has been a hallmark of our politics. Efficient delivery of services is possible through empowerment of the people at the grassroots.

We will not play politics on slogan of new provinces and feed people on false promises. However if the masses give PML-N a mandate, our commitment to making South Punjab and Bahawalpur new provinces is evidenced by passage of resolution by Punjab Assembly.”

It is pertinent to understand that 32% of Punjab’s total population constitutes South Punjab, and provincial government is allocating 36% of Punjab’s development budget every year (2014-2018).
