    LAHORE: Chief Minister Usman Buzdar approved the setting up of a South Punjab secretariat on Tuesday, in a move that is expected to pave the way for the creation of the new province.

    According to details, the headquarters for the police bureaucracy will be set up in Multan, whereas the civil bureaucracy’s headquarters will be established in Bahawalpur.

    A few weeks ago, the chief minister had already approved the appointment of an additional chief secretary and additional inspector general (IG) for South Punjab.

    “PTI is on its way to fulfilling its major promise by setting up a South Punjab secretariat,” said Buzdar. He added that the office will help resolve people's problems at their doorsteps.

    Buzdar issues notification for additional chief secretary South Punjab's appointment
    Earlier this month, the chief minister had issued the notification for the appointment of additional chief secretary and additional inspector general of police for South Punjab.

    At the time, Buzdar had said that new postings would be carried out soon, adding that the officials would dispense their duties from July 1. Due to the measures taken by the government, the sense of deprivation is ending in the people of Punjab, he had said.

    Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had said last month that a secretariat would be set up for the South Punjab province and that Rs3.5 billion had been allocated for this purpose.

    Qureshi had previously stated that the ruling PTI will table a bill in the National Assembly for the creation of the South Punjab province.

    If PTI is able to Make South Punjab a Reality Not only that Region will belong to PTI for Ages But the stage will be set for further Division of Existing Provinces I just hope they will be based on administrative lines and not Ethnic and Linguistic lines.

    I think PTI is aiming to make South Punjab province a reality in around 2023, because most of their seats in Punjab are from the South so if they divide now, then North/Central Punjab CM-ship will go to the Sharifs. I do hope a local name is given to new province rather than just South Punjab, otherwise it may always be in the shadow of the rest of Punjab and may not be able to realize its potential.

    I do agree with your assessment of the timing of Division For now basic Structure should b established so when the time comes everything goes smoothly. But actually Brother South Punjab is a Good name other wise people there might push names with ethnic overtones like Saraikistan. I personally want existing Divisions to be given Provincial Status as South Punjab in itself will be a Huge Province with a population bigger than KPK.

    every political Parties should encourage this move specially from panjab, if they really want to get votes from south panjab in future.

    I hope sense prevail in sindh too.

    The credit for the creation of the state for Saraikis should solely go to PTI and PMIK only.

    If PPP is not ready for powerful local government in Sindh cities then separate province will be the ONLY option.

    Jageerdari and Wadera shahi has no place in 21ST CENTURY.

    What happened? when did he give statement?

    He is just trying to bargain...All hot air.

    PPP needs to be done away with

    What makes you think they love devolution of power? To snatch Sindh from PPP you'll have to pry it from their cold dead hands. An opportunity passed by Musharraf.

    https://www.thenews.com.pk/print/679870-sindh-cm-refuses-to-collect-tax-for-centre

    KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah announced on Monday that his government would not collect advance income tax on behalf of the federal government as he had asked the provincial excise minister to convey to the Centre the decision of his government to this effect.
