Earlier this week on Monday, eight legislators parted ways with the ruling party and also announced launching a mass movement for the sole purpose of making South Punjab a separate province.
Subsequently, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that he was surprised by their newly found love for making South Punjab a separate province. Nawaz claimed that South Punjab has seen plausible development under the leadership of Shehbaz Sharif.
