Lahore -Khusro Bakhtiar, an erstwhile PML-N leader, held a press conference on Monday with like-minded lawmakers to demand that the country be divided into new provinces “for the security of the future of the children of South Punjab.”
During the press conference, Bakhtiar explained that: “New provincial demarcations are the need of the time. We are not here to start a rift — time has made the need for new provinces very apparent.”
“The demarcation of new provinces will ensure that funds allocated for Rajanpur are not given to Multan,” he continued. “All we want is equality amongst the regions.”
“We have a single point agenda: the creation of a new province in South Punjab,” Bakhtiar said.
During the press conference, a total of six MNAs and two MPAs defecting from the PML-N announced that they will be resigning from their posts soon.
