FM urges unity on constitutional amendment for South Punjab

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has invited all opposition parties to reach consensus with the government on passage of a constitutional amendment for the creation of a separate province for South Punjab.

In a message on twitter on Wednesday, he said irrespective of political affiliation, national interest requires unity on the issue.

He said PTI's manifesto promises the creation of a separate province for the people of South Punjab and as a party we worked consistently to deliver on it.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said our focus is socio-economic uplift through reforms and setting up of a South Punjab Civil Secretariat and district development coordination committees for better service delivery to people is a manifestation of this fact.

He mentioned the institution of a separate administrative structure, budgets, jobs & benefits with over 35 percent development budget for South Punjab & ring fencing to stop financial re-appropriation.
