Interestingly besides former MPAs and MNAs, lawyers, members of civil society, journalists and vendors joined hands and demanded of Senator Raza Rabbani led constitutional reforms committee to declare Hazara a province in larger interest of inhabitants of the division.  
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.

Former speaker National Assembly, Gohar Ayub Khan accused PML-N leaders of betraying the people of Hazara by compromising on the new name and remarked that with the passage of time the prefix Khyber would disappear while only Pakhtunkhawa would remain.
