By Super Admin

Peshawar, June 6 (ANI): The Pakistan government is concerned about the emergence of a number of signboards with maps of "Greater Pakhtunistan" have reappearing at various places of Bannu and Lakki Marwat districts of the North West Frontier Province.

Pakistan's Interior Ministry has written a letter to the NWFP government regarding the "objectionable signboards" spotted in the districts, Daily Times reports.

The letter said the signboards were not only detrimental to the national integrity, but could also spark disorder in the province.

The ministry also attached photographs of the signboards with the letter.

According to the letter, the signboards have been installed on Indus Highway, Sarai Naurang and Gandi Khankhel Chowk in Lakki Marwat district; and on Bannu Link Road and the Township area in Bannu.

An interior ministry source was quoted as saying that the ministry had asked the Bannu deputy inspector general to remove the signboards.

The controversial Greater Pakhtunistan' signboards sparked controversy last year, when they appeared in the southern districts of the NWFP for the first time. (ANI)
