DERA GHAZI KHAN - Senior Advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa has said that the PML-N can consider and hold dialogue over carving out more provinces on administrative grounds. However, new provinces on the linguistic basis, including Seraiki province, would not be supported. Addressing a ceremony held to award keys of the vehicles to Border Military Police (BMP) and Baloch Levy at Fort Minro on Tuesday, Khosa said, Seraiki is a language and not a nation. He said both the forces had been well equipped with latest facilities so as to enable it stopping the terrorists and miscreants from entering into Punjab in the hilly terrain of the region. He said allowances and salaries of centuries old tribal forces had been increased besides formulating their service structure as well. He said there was a time when the government was winding up both the tribal forces but he made sincere efforts, which yielded fruitful results, adding that in the past, the forces were assigned the duty of maintaining law and order in Multan, Lahore and other cities as well. He said PML-N did not decide yet about awarding the party ticket for the forthcoming by-poll in PP-240, which had fallen vacant after the resignation by Sardar Mir Badshah Qaisrani. Later, Khosa handed over the keys of 28 vehicles worth Rs 750 million for Rajanpur and Dera Ghazi Khan districts to Commandant Syed Tariq Mehmood Bukhari.
