New province for Southern Punjab to end sense of deprivation: PM

Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani Saturday reiterating creation of a new province for the people of Southern Punjab said it would end their sense of deprivation. Addressing a public gathering here after performing the ground-breaking ceremony of the multi-million housing project donated by Turkish government for flood-affected people, Gilani said people would reject those who were against the creation of a new province. Gilani assured the large gathering of a new province that the new province would be a guarantee to their rights. The Prime Minister delivered his address in Seraiki language and said it was due to demand of the native people who were desirous of getting a separate province.
