Defending the move and policy of his party, former President PML-N Hazara chapter, Pir Sabir Shah said keeping in view the wishes of the people of Hazara, DI Khan and other parts of hindko-speaking majority, the party had proposed the prefix Khyber along with pukhtoonkhawa in the best interest of the province.
