Mansehra: Tehreek-i-Sooba Hazara convener Mushtaq Khan Advocate has asked the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz-led central government to declare the Hazara division as a separate province.
Talking to reporters here, he told Dawn News both PML-N and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf had been playing politics on Hazara province issue.
Flanked by Tehreek’s other office-bearers, Mushtaq said though PML-N leaders made claims of contacting other political parties in and out of the parliament on the matter, the efforts were yet to bear fruits.
“It is high time that PML-N and PTI come forward and move Hazara province resolution in the assembly, and rest of political parties having representation in the parliament should extend support in the larger public interest,” he told Dawn News.
Mushtaq insisted creation of more federating units would help end bad governance and corruption in the country.
