Sources said that the committee will present its suggestions to PM Imran Khan next week in the meeting. Formation of a South Punjab province was one of PTI’s top pledges during the party’s election campaign as the party chief Imran Khan himself promised it when a group of politicians with the demand joined his party.“A separate province is not enough and we will form a committee to solve South Punjab’s issues,” Imran Khan had said in May.
It is pertinent to mention here that the creation of South Punjab province is a major issue of PTI-leg government’s 100-day plan.
