These sources said that there was no difference on revoking the 17th Constitutional Amendment or Article 58(2)B and all the parties were on the same page on these much talked about distortions in the Constitution. A member of the committee, seeking anonymity, saw it difficult to accomplish the task by end December, as all the main contentious issues are still unresolved. The member, however, admitted that the chairman of the committee Mian Raza Rabbani had, however, expressed his optimism to come up with a consensus draft proposal for amendments in the Constitution by the end of December and in this connection a number of PPP senior leaders had given statements. The sources in the committee further said that it was the consensus view of the committee that no more recommendations from any quarter would be entertained now and the focus of the committee would remain on thrashing out differences on the key issues.The sources close to ANP informed TheNation that they would not drop its demand of getting NWFP renamed. However, these sources said that the leadership of the party might compromise on renaming of NWFP as Afghania instead of Pakhtoonkhawa. The sources further said that ANP senior leader and Federal Minister Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour on Friday had a meeting with PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif to woo his support on renaming of the province as Pakhtoonhkawa. The sources further said that Pakistan Muslim League(Nawaz) was under pressure from its members from Hazara Division not to extend support to ANP on renaming NWFP as Pakhtoonkhawa and on their suggestion PML-N leadership had floated the name of Afghania instead of Pakhtoonkhawa. The sources in ANP said that in the larger interest of the country ANP could agree on the name of Afghania and would not press for Pakhtoonkhawa. However, for surrendering their right to get NWFP renamed as Pakhtoonkhawa, ANP could get some more concessions for their province in shape of maximum provincial autonomy and settlement of some other monetary matters relating to royalty issue.
