Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi says creation of South Punjab province is a necessity which cannot be ignored.      

Talking to newsmen in Multan on Sunday, he said the establishing a separate province in South Punjab is part of PTI's manifesto.   

The Minister said a committee has been set up on the issue to develop political consensus as no single party is in a position to bring constitutional amendment to pave the way for the creation of South Punjab province.   

He said the committee will hold consultations and will come up with solid recommendations. These will be put before other opposition parties and we request them to rise above politics and make decision based on objective reality and needs of the people.

He told a questioner that All Parties Conference of the opposition parties should be meaningful and not focused on saving someone. 

On another question, he said he does not see any possibility of Governor's Rule in Sindh and it is baseless news.
