VEHARI - Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan said the PML-N wanted further administrative units not only in Punjab but also in other provinces as per requirement.

He said that the PPP was not sincere in creating new provinces but only trying to get the political benefits. He added that the PPP wanted unrest in the Punjab as well after Sindh and Balochistan.

He said that his party was not against the creation of new provinces but the PML-N wanted all the stakeholders in the commission for creation of new provinces. He was talking to the media accompanied by Punjab Parliamentary Secretary Naeem Khan and MPA Shamilla Aslam.

"The statement regarding new provinces was made by the PML-N but in the commission no representation has been given to the party," he said. To a question, he said that it was the party decision not to join hands with Sheikh Rasheed, adding that the latter represented agencies and work for them.

Talking about Imran Khan, he criticised the PTI chairman regarding charity issue and said why Imran was not filing a case in the court against Khawaja Asif. Mr imran should prove himself honest then PML-N will think about coordination with his party.

Mashhood observed that Javed Hashmi was not acting like a mature politician. Later he checked the arrangements of youth festival which is going on in three tehsils of Vehari. He was also briefed by DCO Ahsan Bhutta regarding the youth festival. He praised the arrangements made by the district administration for the festival.
