South Punjab Province creation: PMLN plays dirty game with people of Punjab
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday submitted a constitutional amendment bill in the National Assembly for the creation of two provinces “Bahawalpur and South Punjab provinces”.
With two provinces call, PMLN has stirred a new controversy and will make people of South Punjab fight with each other and no province would be created.
Addressing a press conference alongside former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and PML-N spokesperson Marriyam Aurangzeb, Ahsan Iqbal said the PML-N had achieved another milestone by submitting a constitutional amendment bill in the National Assembly to create two new provinces of South Punjab and Bahawalpur provinces.
On behalf of his party, he extended full support to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in creating South Punjab province.
“If the government is serious on the matter of creating the province, then the opposition will unconditionally second it,” he added.
The former interior minister also said his party had promised people for the new province as per their aspirations. “If the incumbent government is sincere in its claim then it should move the bill forward for formation of the aforesaid provinces.
