Seraiki nationalists also demanded the government table a bill for the creation of the Seraiki province in the Punjab Assembly. Up to 11 Seraiki nationalist parties have unanimously rejected the establishment of the South Punjab Administrative Secretariat and decided to make a Suba Seraikistan Action Committee. Pakistan Seraiki Party chairperson Dr Nikhbah Taj Langah told reporters the Seraiki nationalist parties had termed the South Punjab Secretariat a drama staged by the ruling elite to capture sympathies of the masses of the Seraiki region. The government was using the South Punjab Secretariat as a card in the proposed Local Government polls to capture maximum seats, she alleged, and added that the establishment of the South Punjab Secretariat was a joke with the people of this region who were demanding a separate province to protect their identity, language, culture and history. She said that all the nationalist parties had decided to make a Suba Seraikistan Action Committee in the wider interest of the people of this remote region.
