As per my opinion if southern punjab made pronvince on base of language, its environment will become as karachi and Sindh areas. So if made province on base of adminstration not on language then the new province succeed.

Multan , Bahawalpur landlords are always in top government, what they did for this region? Shame to irritate linguistic movement just for the cause of making his son chief minister of new province. PPP wants to turn this most peaceful region into Karachi like MQM did ;and break away Pakistan one more time.Administrative units is a sensible thought/

Make every local government a province without governors and cabinets. Eliminate duplication of functions and overstepping of toes. We cannot afford unstoppable greed of "Rulers without heart for ruled".

In Multan and Bahawalpur, Punjabis are also there. If province is made based on language, we will see happening fights between sirakis and Punjabi in this area as we see fight in Karachi. Provinces should be made based on administrative plan not the language based. Big landlords in serakee are the actual people responsible for backward of this area as these landlords are always in power.

- don't give the poor CLEAN DRINKING WATER, give them more provinces. don't give them PURE MILK' give the more constitutional amendments. don't give the poor unadulterated FOOD, give them some senate elctions . . .

Could anyone from the "brains" behind this idea, explain as to how a new province will bring prosperity? If they can, we should've as many provinces as possible
