After Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and its coalition partners passed a resolution for the formation of a south Punjab province, Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML) submitted a resolution for the formation of four new provinces in the country.
The resolution submitted in the National Assembly calls for the formation of Bahawalpur, FATA, south Punjab and Hazara provinces.
Earlier today, the National Assembly had successfully passed a resolution for the formation of a new province carved out of south Punjab.
Leader of the Opposition Chaudhry Nisar had complained that the speaker had taken up such an important matter without giving notice. He had claimed there was too much noise and questioned how the speaker determined who had voted in favour of the resolution and who had not.
