MULTAN: On Saturday, Foreign Minister of Pakistan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that a separate South Punjab province along with its secretariat will be established this year.
Speaking to the media in Multan, Qureshi said that a separate Public Service Commission will also be established for the proposed province. “We have sought support from the opposition for the creation of Southern Punjab province,” he said.
He further asserted that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf government believes in the rule of law.
Regarding National Accountability Bureau’s recent crackdown against politicians, Qureshi said that all of the accountability watchdogs’ cases were filed during the tenure of previous governments.
Qureshi continued that politics of confrontation is not the government’s policy and that they are just implementing the decisions of courts. “Prime Minister Imran Khan believes in the supremacy of law and he even appeared in the unjustified helicopter case.”
