Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday announced that PML-N would table its own amendment bill for the creation of Bahawalpur and South Punjab provinces in line with the resolutions passed by the Punjab Assembly.

Addressing a press conference here, he said that his party was also committed to Hazara province. But he added that PML-N would consult with other parties on this issue.

He lashed out at the PPP government for doing politics in the name of new provinces.

“No senior member of the PML-N belonging to Punjab was consulted prior to the formation of parliamentary commission, which was unlawfully named by President Zardari,” he added.

He stated that members of the Parliamentary Commission on Creation of New Province were from ANP and MQM, which had no representation in Punjab.

Chaudhry Nisar said that the federal government should have consulted the PML-N about the formation of commission under the law. He underlined that parts of Northern Punjab were also included in the proposed South Punjab province.
