“PPP was the first to raise voice on South Punjab province,” he said while addressing public rally in Layyah.

Taking a jibe at PTI chief Bilawal said that Imran Khan usually changes his stance on different circumstances, adding that Imran had promised to eliminate corruption in 100 days which he failed in doing so. “How he (Imran) would make province in 90 days,” Bilawal asks.

Bilawal said that opposition would get nothing from Layyah if they continue call for separate province for their personal gains.

“PTI didn’t raise voice for South Punjab province in National Assembly for five years, now suddenly they came to know about South Punjab province as general elections 2018 are near,” he added.

Highlighting’s his party’s work in Layyah,  Bilawal said the PPP brought gas to Layyah and always worked for the people’s welfare.

Criticising Shehbaz Sharif Bilawal said that CM Punjab has always considered South Punjab as colony.

He tells people to vote for ‘Teer’ (Symbol of PPP) in order to get good education, hospitals and developmental works.

On Wednesday, 20 defected lawmakers of PML-N had joined PTI with an agreement to set up a new province within 90 days of formation of the government.

It is pertinent to mention that South Punjab holds a critical point in Pakistan politics, as it has mainly 46 seats in the National Assembly.
