Ghulam Bilour urges federal govt to merge Fata with KP
July 16, 2017

PESHAWAR, 16 July: Awami National Party leader MNA Ghulam Ahmad Bilour on Sunday asked the federal government to merge the tribal areas with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa so that FATA people could get rights like residents of settled areas.
Addressing a gathering of party workers at Peshawar City Town, Bilour said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had initiated the process of merging FATA with KP. Now he should complete the process, he said.
Bilour said that ANP is against the demand of Nawaz Sharif resignation as prime minister in the backdrop of the Joint Investigation Team report in Panama Leaks case. Terming immediate demand of PM’s resignation after JIT report, he alleged that it is the Imran Khan’ agenda to get government.
He further said that they should wait for the Supreme Court order in Panama Leaks case.
He also criticised KP government and said that provincial government is facing a financial, political and constitutional crisis.
