PESHAWAR, 10 January: The Fata chapter of the Pakistan Muslim League (N) on Tuesday asked the party leadership and the federal government to abolish FCR and merger the tribal belt in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The demand was made during a public meeting held here regarding reforms process in Fata.

As other political parties including PTI, Jamaat-e-Islami, ANP and PPP have been holding rallies and public meeting against FCR, the PMLN Fata leadership also tried to show its strength and win favor of the tribal people for raising voice against the FCR.

Advisor to Prime Minister, Ameer Muqam, members of national assembly Shahabuddin Khan, Ibad Khan, PMLN secretary general for Fata Sardar Azam and tribal elders addressed the meeting. Large number of party workers from all the tribal agencies had come to the public meeting.

The speakers demanded from the federal government to abolish FCR at the earliest and merger Fata into KP as per the aspirations of the people of Fata.

Ameer Muqam while addressing the meeting said that since the inception of Pakistan, nobody bothered to initiate reforms process in Fata. “It was the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who started the process and will hopefully introduce reforms in Fata,” he said.

He added that the people of Fata would be given their due rights at any cost.

Member of National Assembly Shahab-u-Din Khan said that FCR should be abolished in Fata so that the miseries of the people they had been facing since long in one shape or another, could come to an end.
