Shujaat objects to renaming of NWFP

Express April 11, 2010


PML-Q Chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain says PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif agreed to rename NWFP in order to secure personal gains.

Addressing a press conference in Abbottabad, Chaudhary Shujaat said the PML Q's objections were not entertained over renaming the province.

He insisted that the name Khyber Pakhtunkhwa does not correspond with the aspirations of the people of NWFP, especially those in Hazara.

The PML-Q chief stressed that if NWFP's name is reverted, his party will support the move and back it in the National Assembly and Senate.
