Sindh was the first province, which voted in favour of Pakistan with a heavy majority led by G.M Syed, followed by Balochistan & KPK. There was no rift or any kind of disharmony within these states.
But there was tricky situation in Punjab. When Akalidal Leader Master Tara Singh pronounced the slogan, standing at the gates of joint Punjab Assembly and waiving Karpan (the sword) in the air, that, “anyone who will demand for Pakistan will be killed”. Then, S. P. Singha, who was at that time, the Speaker of joint Punjab Assembly, answered the Akalidal leader Master Tara Singh with these word, that, “we will die but will not stop demanding Pakistan”.
There was tie between supporters of Pakistan and India with 88 votes each in Punjab. With four members to decide the fate of province. One was absent and other 3 voted in favour of Pakistan. Punjab became part of Pakistan with 91-88 votes.
