Qureshi Underlines Need for Concrete Steps For Creation of South Punjab Province

MULTAN: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government will complete its term and will also give surprise in next general elections.

Talking to media persons, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that government is fully aware of inflation in the country but PTI has taken steps for stability in the economy. Coronavirus affected global economy but the country still managed well despite the pandemic, he added.

Talking about creation of South Punjab province, Qureshi said that he has penned a letter to Shehbaz Sharif and Bilawal Bhutto on the matter as government wants to fulfill its promise but establishment of new province requires constitutional amendment which requires support from opposition.

He further said that government is even willing to give opposition the credit for the constitutional amendment if it wants.

While criticizing Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), the minister said that all political parties of Sindh have rejected the provincial local government act. He added that PTI is in favor of local bodies elections.
