PPP committed to making South Punjab a province: Zardari

President Asif Ali Zardari has said that making South Punjab a separate province was part of PPP’s nation building process and the party would endeavor to honour its commitment made with the people of South Punjab. “The creation of a Janoobi Punjab province would help provide the people of South Punjab with the needed openings and opportunities for their socio-economic development,” the president said while talking to a delegation of office bearers of PPP South Punjab led by Makhdoom Shahab-ud-Din, Federal Minister for Textile Industries, which called on him at the Aiwan-e-Sadr late Friday night. The delegation included among others Haider Zaman Qureshi, Senior Vice President PPP South Punjab, Shaukat Basra and Khawaja Rizwan Alam. The participants congratulated the president on the success of a PPP candidate, Abdul Qadir Gilani, in by-election in NA 151 Multan and also apprised him about the aspirations of the people of South Punjab about the creation of a new province for them. The president stressed the need to increase mass contact with the people to better understand their problems with a view to resolving them.

      How did it break Pakistan? Gen Yahya and his colleague generals were 110% in power and PPP was an opposition party out of power with no govt at all. Decisions are always made by people sitting in PM or president chair and not by an opposition party. Today if Zardari or Shahbaz does something to Pakistan, would you blame Jamat Islami or Tehrik e Insaaf. Surely not, then how was it PPP in 1971?

    PPP did not break Pakistan,go to Bangladesh and find out why Bengali wanted to separate from Jinnah Pakistan,the obvious reason for Bengali demand to separate from Pakistan was because the brave army of Pakistan was killing its own people, Pakistani army and jammat islami's foot soldiers were involved in killings of five million Bengalis,Pakistani army and Punjab denied the rights of Bengalis as Punjabis are denying the rights of Sindis,Baloch and Pakhtuns today,next time if you guys think that PPP broke Pakistan then visit Bangladesh and find out about Pakistan's Punjabi Army who was involved in crimes against humanity in former east pakistan and punjabis were treating Bengali like third class citizens.

    Happy Birthday Zardari: You need a good year

    Zardari may not have academic skills, or interests, but he is first rate at understanding problems. Like all Indian prime ministers since 1991, he has been in power without a parliamentary majority for his party.
