RAHIMYAR KHAN - Former information minister and chief of movement for restoration of Bahawalpur province, Muhammad Ali Durrani has said that the masses desire to see restoration of the province before general elections and if their demands were not fulfilled no one could stop them to move to streets to record their protest.

Muhammad Ali Durrani said that after the Punjab Assembly resolution regarding restoration of Bahawalpur province, nobody could deprive the people of their constitutional and legal right.
He said that resolution for restoration of Bahawalpur province was aimed for assisting the people of the region to get rid of feudalism and initiating a new era of development and prosperity.
The former information minister said that parliamentary commission as per its constitutional and legal responsibility should submit the unanimous resolution passed by the Punjab Assembly in the parliament.
He said that Senate’s Committee for SAFRON has also forwarded the recommendations regarding Bahawalpur province restoration to chairman Senate and every legal formality in this connection has been fulfilled.
