Syed Ali Zafar's article on the need for constitutional reform with particular emphasis on more power to the provinces is very well argued. The provinces are simmering and in order to create harmony it is essential that more powers be given than they have under the existing constitutional structure. PPP is the only national party that can carry out this agenda and is doing the right thing by keeping all parties together and proceeding on a national reconciliation strategy. This is the ideal time to carry out suggestions advised by the author for increase in number of provinces as all the parties are together and there could be a consensus. -RIAZ A.
