New Province

Pakistan, Islamabad News – A parliamentary commission set up for the creation of new provinces met here Thursday with Senator Farhatullah Babar in chair and discussed the boundaries and area of the province in South Punjab.

The meeting was attended by the Senators and Members of the National Assembly from Dera Ismail Khan, Multan and Bahawalpur.

The commission also discussed the name of new province and its capital city besides boundaries and the area.

On Thursday, Senator Farhatullah Babar told the meeting that around eight constitutional amendments would be required in the 1973 constitution as the draft of the bill was also being prepared.

Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) MNA Khawaja Sheraz from Taunsa Sharif said that if the new province was created, then rivers Chashma, Karimun and Chenab should be made part of it as all of these irrigate southern Punjab.

Moreover, he said the new province would not be acceptable if Mianwali and Jhang were excluded from it.

After completion, the bill of constitutional amendment and final report would be sent to the Speaker National Assembly after deciding the name, capital of the province and demarcation of boundaries.

The commission would again meet on Saturday. Agencies
