President's 'say' on Seraiki province flayed: Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs minister Haji Ehsan Uddin Qureshi on Saturday criticised the statement of President Zardari regarding Seraiki province, saying that he (zardari) was playing with the sentiments of the residents of South Punjab.

"He is the man who is doing politics on this issue for the last four years. It's tantamount to making mockery of residents of this region by saying that this province can't be made while sitting in the same region," he maintained while addressing workers.

He anticipated that the masses would reject all those doing politics of lies and fraud. He said that Multan was the fortress of PML-N and soon bigwigs of the PPP were going to quit their party.
