Abbottabad: In a press conference held at the residence of the chief of Tehreek-i-Sooba Hazara (TSH), Baba Haider Zaman, has declared the resolution passed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly for the creation of Hazara province as illegal and against the constitution. He stated that according to the article 239 (4) of the constitution, the 2/3rd majority of the total members were needed to pass any resolution.
At the time of this resolution, only 34 members were present in the house and this did not accumulate to the requirement as stated by the constitution. Baba Haider Zaman stated that most of the team members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf operating in Hazara had no credibility and were known to change their loyalties. He further added that the slogan of Hazara province was used to deceive people and get votes.
Baba Haider Zaman also stated that if the resolution had been passed sincerely then the TSH would have been happy. The dual intention of the Tehreek-e-Insaaf is evident from the fact that they at first presented the resolution for the creation of a separate province and then at the same time demanded a change in the name of the province.
Baba Haider Zaman pledged to fight for the right of the people of Hazara to have a separate province and said that a ceremony would be held on April 12 to honour the sacrifice of the people who gave their lives for this cause four years ago.
