JAMSHORO: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said here on Tuesday there is no need for establishing new provinces in the country and those calling for the same are serving their own political interests.

Talking to a Sindh Journalist Network delegation, Pervaiz said his government was concentrating on removing hatred, misunderstanding and reservations among the people of the country, which he claimed were created under a conspiracy.

The chief minister said that his government was developing relations of love, harmony and peace between the people of the Punjab and Sindh.

In this regard he emphasised the need for exchanging delegations of newsmen, intellectuals as well as of cultural and social groups between all the four provinces, especially between Sindh and the Punjab.

Pervaiz said the Punjab people had “national thoughts, emotions and spirit”, which had made it possible for ZA Bhutto, Muhammad Khan Junejo, Benazir Bhutto and Zafarullah Jamali to become prime ministers.

He claimed that like in the past the Punjab was still the most active province as regards making help and rescue efforts for the flood victims of Balochistan and Sindh.

He said the Punjab had dispatched teams of hundreds of doctors and nurses, a big quantity of medicines and Rs 50 million grant for the flood victims of Sindh.

Pervaiz informed newsmen that his government, for the first time in the Punjab’s history, had make efforts to bring reforms to the Punjabi language, saying that alphabets of Punjabi were being prepared and a Punjabi language institute was being established.
