Tribal Jirga asks administration to make Kurran Agency arms free
July 14, 2017

PARACHINAR, 13 July: Political leaders and tribal elders during a jirga demanded of political administration to make Kurram Agency arms free.
Local political leaders, elders of Bangash, Chamkani, Alisherzai, Masozai, Zimasht and Mengal tribes, religious scholars and students attended the jirga. They demanded of the political administration to seize arms from all the houses in the agency. The tribal elders also extended their full support to the administration to make the agency arms free. They further demanded to declare all those as terrorists who refuse to hand over their arms to the administration.
The jirga demanded of the administration to build the Gulfam Shaheed Cadet College in Balashkhel and refrain from shifting the college to Parachinar. They argued that Balashkhel is the boundary between Ahl-e-Tashi and Ahl-e-Sunnat and so both the sects would equally benefit from the college.
