LAHORE: Pakistan’s main opposition party in the National Assembly, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N), will create new provinces on administrative grounds if they come into power in the upcoming general elections, the party’s manifesto committee decide Saturday.

The meeting of the committee was held in Lahore today and presided by PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif.

U can base ur manifestation on slogans, at least do not base manifesto on lies, commissions and baseless blames, do not hang any one up and down in bhati chowk. If U can get rid of Mushahidullah, khawja Asif and Sher Ali credit will rise. Mushahidulla is to old like G ibrahim. If U have accepted the money from generals accept it we can excuse U
