Mehsud tribesmen seek conversion of Sada-e-Aman programme into BISP
March 01, 2017

TANK, 1 March: The elders of Mehsud tribe of South Waziristan Agency have called upon the government to convert the Sada-e-Aman programme into Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP).

The Mehsud tribe elders said while talking to media persons in Tank on Tuesday that the damages caused by military operations in South Waziristan will never be compensated because their houses along with household items and agricultural lands were destroyed and their businesses also suffered irrecoverable losses. They said the affected people are living a miserable life after military operations.

The Mehsud elders said the tribesmen get Rs4,000 per month as assistance under Sada-e-Aman programme, but they want this programme to be converted into BISP.

Rehmat Shah, a resident of Gotkai area of tehsil Tiarza, said this programme must be given a permanent status.

“The war has ended but it deprived us of our homes, agricultural lands and businesses. No mean of income is left for us. The government should give permanent status to this assistance programme to give some relief to the affected people,” he said.
