GHALLANAI, 1 July: The political administration of Mohmand Agency has warned the elders of Safi tribe of a military operation in the area if they failed to take action against the anti-state elements and their facilitators.

The Jirga was held at the agency headquarters Ghallanai on Friday in which the law and order situation in the region came under discussion. Assistant Political Agent Haseeb Khan and elders from four sub-tribes of Safi tribe attended the Jirga.

The APA criticised the tribal elders for failing to fulfil their area responsibilities due to which law and order situation is worsening in the region. He asked the tribal elders to vacate their areas and houses for an imminent military operation if they cannot act against the anti-state elements and their facilitators.

On the other hand, the tribal elders said the political administration was also not fulfilling its responsibilities. They said the political officials often don’t give time to tribal elders for meeting. They said the administration has ended the Aman Committee and also taken back weapons from them.

The elders said they will never allow the miscreants to disturb the law and order in the area, but the administration should also fulfil its responsibilities.
