MANSEHRA: The Tehreek-i-Suba Hazara (TSH) has demanded the government to announce creation of Hazara province along with southern Punjab province.

“The pervious PTI-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had passed a resolution seeking creation of Hazara province and Imran Khan should now do it and get the same resolution passed from the National Assembly,” Mushtaq Khan advocate, the TSH convener, told a meeting on Saturday.

People from different walks of life largely attended the meeting, which unanimously adopted a resolution demanding the federal government to amend the Constitution to pave the way for creation of more federating units including Hazara and southern Punjab provinces in the country.

Speaking on the occasion, former opposition leader in KP Assembly Shahzada Gustasap Khan said that it was an era of decentralisation and devolution of power.

“As the population has increased, more and more federating units could be created but it has not happened, this is why resultantly we have been facing enormous socio-economic challenges,” he said.
