Some elements creating hurdles in creation of South Punjab province: Qureshi



MULTAN: Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi Tuesday said some elements were creating complications and hurdles in the establishment of South Punjab province by dividing the people.

Multan, he said, was emerging as a hub of business activities in South Punjab and with the establishment of a new province, trade would further enhance in the region. The city had become another big centre of media after Lahore, he added.

The foreign minister was speaking as chief guest at a ceremony held here in honour of the newly appointed Vice Chancellor of Bahauddin Zakariya University(BZU) Prof Dr Tariq Mahmood Ansari by All Pakistan Anjuman-e-Tajran.

The minister said he was personally in favour of only one province in south Punjab. Currently, no one should think of two or more provinces, however, in future, the number of provinces could be enhanced, he added.

Qureshi said he presented the case of South Punjab province in the meetings of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf with reference to regional statistics, population of the area, good governance and devolution of powers.

The Indian Punjab was smaller than Pakistan’s Punjab, but they (India) carved out three provinces from it.

The Pakistani Punjab was even bigger than many European countries, he added.

The establishment of South Punjab province, he said, would further strengthen the federation.

Qureshi he said small provinces had also complaints against Punjab.

Politicians like Wali Khan, Bizenjo, Bugti and Mengal had always voiced that Punjab was dominating the country’s politics. If reviewed on merit and logic, the creation of South Punjab province was inevitable now, he added.
