FATA Students Protest Against FCR
PESHAWAR, 17 February: The FATA Students Federation on Friday staged a protest demonstration in front of Peshawar Press Club against the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) law.
The protesting students were chanting slogans against the FCR and proposed Riwaj Act and said they will approach the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the federal government if FATA was not merged with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
FATA Students Federation Campus chairman Javed Khan said the British-era FCR is the main cause of problems in FATA.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Member National Assembly Ayesha Gulalai, who also participated in the protest, said FATA should be merged with KP without delay. She asked the federal government not to use delaying tactics in this regard. She said the tribal people will launch protests and boycott polio vaccination campaign if reforms were not implemented.
