LAKKI MARWAT - Activists of Pakistan Muslim League-Q) took out a rally on Monday to protest against the renaming of NWFP as Khyber Pakhtunkhawa. Led by provincial vice president Abid Nawaz Marwat the protesters marched on Lakki-Darra Tang road and chanted full-throated slogans against the new name of the province. They wrapped green bends round their arms and carried banners and party flags to show their displeasure and rage over the new name. The local police administration had deployed law enforcers on and around the Lakki-Darra Tang road to maintain peace and ensure protection of the participants of the rally. Earlier speaking at a protest meeting at his resident Abid Nawaz Marwat said that the new name Khyber Pakhtunkhawa was not acceptable to the people of entire province except three or four districts. He said that the followers of Ghandi had inherited the name from the legacy of Ghandi and it was against the ideology of Pakistan. The residents of Hazara, southern districts and people belonging to other communities have strongly opposed the renaming of NWFP as Khyber Pakhtunkhawa hence the government should hold referendum on it, he maintained. The PML leader said that former Premier Nawaz Sharif had assented the new name just for the sake of paving the way for lifting ban on becoming third time prime minister. The PML-N leadership, he said, did not think about the sentiments of residents of Frontier province especially of Hazara division. He said that his party would continue opposing the new name of the province at all fronts and forums as it was against the aspirations of the people.
