Greater Punjab was the dream of Raja Ranjit Singh centered on the throne of Lahore, but the goal of Greater Punjab was to occupy the land from Kailash Parbat to Sindhu Sagar (Indus Sea).  The British crushed the dream of Raja Ranjit Singh after which Punjab was divided into two parts (East Punjab and West Punjab).
  The Indian government divided Indian Punjab into three parts (Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab) to end the supremacy of Punjabis.
  To establish the supremacy of the Punjabis, the Pakistani government annexed the state of Bhawalpur (Bahawalpur, Bhawalingar and Rahim Yar Khan districts) and the independent tribal areas of Dera Ghazi Khan division (Dera Ghazi Khan, Leh, Muzaffargarh and Rajanpur districts) to Punjab.  .  After which the geographical, numerical and political majority of Punjab increased.
  The British government distributed the canal land at Sukkur Barrage only to the Sindhis, but the Pakistan government distributed the land inhabited by the canals (canals) formed by the Rohri Canal, the Jumrao Canal along with the Kotra Barrage and the Guddu Barrage.  The Punjabi settlers were deprived of political majority.
  The remaining gap was filled by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhuti who gave Punjabis and Pathans legal right to education, jobs, employment, setting up factories and buying land in Sindh according to the 1973 constitution.
  Greater Punjab is virtually united since 1973, now becoming independent is a difficult task.
