PESHAWAR, 11 January: A “goodbye FCR” rally was held under the auspices of the Fata Students Organization (FSO) in Peshawar on Wednesday to press the federal government to expedite the process of reforms in Fata.

Chanting slogans of “go FCR go”, the participants of the rally marched from Qayum Sports Complex to the Governor’s House where they held a protest demonstration expressing their anger on the delay in the implementation of the reforms package.

Speaking to the protesters, students leader appreciated the federal government for constituting a committee for introducing the much awaited reforms in the tribal areas.

They demanded of the federal government to abolish FCR without any further delay and merge Fata in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The speakers were of the view that the people of Fata had been passing a life full of troubles and difficulties due to the British-era law. They said the tribesmen living in Fata had been deliberately kept deprived of better education and health facilities.

“We request the government to implement the reforms it has prepared for Fata without any further delay. We also demand that the government should announce holding Local Government elections in each tribal agency,” said FSO president Shaukat Aziz.

He added that they would not accept the Rivaj Act and if the government tried to replace FCR with the new act, they would launch a protest drive against it.

“We want that Fata should be merged in KP and the areas should be brought under the law prevailing in rest of the country,” he demanded.

President of the Fata Political Alliance Nisar Mohmand, JI Fata ameer Sardar Khan, Said Alam Mehsud, leaders of other political parties and large number of students attended the rally.
