LANDI KOTAL, 07 January: Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), Fata chapter has announced to take out a rally in Peshawar on Jan 10 to put pressure on its party leadership to expedite the Fata reforms process.

Speaking to reporters here at the Landi Kotal press club president of the PMLN, Fata chapter Faqeer Muhammad Afridi and other leaders said that they wanted to make it clear to the party leadership that majority of the Fata people wanted to merge with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“Since our party is in power in the Center, we want to make the leadership realize that the people of Fata want to get rid of FCR. We request the federal government to accept our demand as soon as possible,” Faqeer Muhammad Afridi said.

He told reports that almost all the leadership of the PMLN including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor, Iqbal Zafar Jhagra were in favor of the reforms, however, he said two of the federal government coalition partners – Maulana Fazal ur Rahman and Mahmood Khan Achakzai – had been creating hurdles in the process.

“The federal government should not listen to the objections of the two politicians and announce the immediate merger of Fata in KP as per the aspirations of the people of Fata,” the PMLN leader said.

He informed that a huge public rally would be taken out on ring road in Peshawar to put pressure on the federal government not to delay the proposed reforms process.
