The PPP on Saturday tabled a resolution in the Punjab Assembly for the creation of South Punjab province. The resolution was moved by Opposition Leader Raja Riaz and other lawmakers of the party. Later, speaking to reporters, Riaz criticised Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, saying he was a convict and was involved in a plane-hijacking case. He said South Punjab province was essential for the Seraiki people who had been ignored since a long time. The National Assembly has already passed resolution for establishment of South Punjab province.
