Zardari orders Gilani to kick-start consultations

* President vows to give rights to people of southern Punjab in current tenure 

* PM’s son being falsely implicated in drugs case


MULTAN: President Asif Ali Zardari on Saturday called upon Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to immediately start consultative process with all political parties to form Seraiki province in southern Punjab.



The president said this while meeting a delegation of People’s Lawyer Forum in Multan. According to the president’s spokesperson, Farhatullah Babar, the president told the delegation that the government wanted to respect and honour aspirations of the people of southern Punjab.

The president said the Pakistan People’s Party had promised to give an identity to the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and “we fulfilled our promise”. “Similarly, we gave rights to our Baloch brothers and the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. Now, we have promised the people of this belt to cater to their aspirations and we will do our best to honour our commitment.” Zardari said the people of southern Punjab had every right to demand and have their own province, adding that the PPP leadership respected their wishes and aspirations.

He said that this was the right time to give what people had been asking for so long. 

“If giving rights to people is a crime, we will continue to commit such crimes,” the spokesperson quoted the president as saying. The president vowed to give rights to the people of southern Punjab during tenure of the present government.

He said Seraiki province was a question of Pakistan’s future, adding that efforts should be undertaken to cater to the aspirations of people.

The president said Prime Minister Gilani was being targeted because of his support for Seraiki province.
