Govt urged to amend Constitution to create more federating units

Govt urged to amend Constitution to create more federating units

MANSEHRA: The speakers at a seminar on Tuesday asked the government to amend the Constitution to pave the way for creation of more federating units in the country on the basis of administration.

"We want the federal government first to adopt a resolution seeking creation of Hazara province and then bring an amendment to the Constitution for creation of more federating units in the country," PML-N MNA Saleh Mohammad Khan told the seminar. The seminar was organised by the Tehreek-i-Suba Hazara (TSH) at the Mansehra Press Club.

The speakers from various political parties, including Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Qaumi Watan Party, Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl, Jamaat-i-Islami and Pakistan People's Party stressed upon the government to realise the situation and create more provinces in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, convener TSH Mushtaq Khan said that time was not far away when their struggle would meet a logical end and more federating units would be created. Babar Saleem Khan Swati, the district president of PTI, said his party was sincere in creating more provinces. "If people voted us into power, we would create more federating units in the country for efficient and better management and address civic issues," said Swati. Maulana Wasiur Rehman of JUI-F said that deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif had announced to make Hazara another province during the general election of 2013.
