ISLAMABAD - Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday demanded the formation of a commission on the issue of new provinces.

“The PML-N is not against the creation of new provinces but the party will not support provinces on linguistic basis,” Nisar told the media outside the Parliament.

He came down hard on the MQM, saying that the MQM should resolve matters related to Karachi. “Their fake speeches will not work. Their leader is giving instructions from London,” he said, adding that the MQM would even oppose making any district in Karachi city.

It is an attempt to divert the attention from real issue, he said, adding that the issue should be dealt under the rules and regulation.

Criticising Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, he said that the PM changed his statement every second day.
