'Fresh' movement for a South Punjab Province reawakened a month ago, with the South Punjab Subha Mahaaz merging into PTI going into the upcoming General Elections. I personally am in favour of a new Province being created in S Punjab, as long as its purely on a administrative basis. A simple South Punjab Province, not Saraikistan or anything like that. Itll help in terms of the 'balance' between the Provinces of the country, as you wont have a Province towering over the other Provinces of the country (which will also help finish the Province centric politics certain politicians play when the time suits them). Itll also take the burden off Lahore, with places like Multan, Bahawalpur, DG Khan being developed as 'resource centers' for the 'local' population and for the area as a whole. You have 'triangular infrastructure development between places like Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Lahore and Sialkot. The same can be done in S Punjab which makes sense, considering the most per capital income is in S Punjab as opposed to North Punjab. However, the biggest reason/need for a new Province is...you population figures. Approx 52% of Pakistan's population is in Punjab, over half the country's population is situation in a single Province. No one can effectively government a population that big (a population/Province as if not bigger than some countries btw) from one city. IG Punjab cannot have such a outreach; Secretary Health cannot have such an effective outreach; same with Secretary Education. So the time has come to create a smaller administrate unit within Punjab to ensure effective and easier governance which will only benefit the people of Punjab and in turn Pakistan. In time, other divisional units (in KPK, Sindh and Balochistan) should be created (however nothing along ethnic/linguistic lines) to ensure better/easier governance.
