ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan People’s Party will continue to support creation of Southern Punjab Province to honour aspirations of local people. This was stated by Member of National Assembly PPP, Main Abdul Sattar while talking to APP. He said people of Southern Punjab had a sense of deprivation for long time and a separate province would offer a solution to their problems.
He strongly criticized the Sharif Brothers for spending billions of rupees on in Lahore localities and said they allocated nothing for South Punjab.
