Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal said on Wednesday that Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was fooling people on the name of South Punjab.
Iqbal was reacting to a news conference in which Qureshi had spoken about the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government moving a bill in the National Assembly for the formation of the South Punjab province. In that news conference, Qureshi said there were members in the PML-N stuck on the bill they had presented in the past.
Ahsan Iqbal said the PML-N had already presented a bill in the National Assembly for the formation of the South Punjab and Bahawalpur provinces. He added that this bill was opposed by the PTI.
Iqbal added that the PML-N bill was already with the standing committee, calling on Qureshi to look into this matter immediately.
