PESHAWAR, 6 December: Leaders of the FATA Grand Alliance on Tuesday held a meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra in Peshawar and informed him about their reservations on merger of FATA with KP.

The Alliance Coordinator Malik Salahuddin Kokikhel told media that the Alliance leaders during the meeting at the Governor House rejected the merger of FATA with KP and demanded establishment of a separate FATA Council or province. The leaders also said a referendum should be held in FATA before introduction of reforms and capacity of Khassadar and Levies should be enhanced instead of bringing police and patwari system in the tribal areas. The coordinator said the Alliance leaders will also hold meetings with the president, prime minister and army chief to inform them about their reservations on FATA reforms.

Meanwhile, the governor said in a meeting with a delegation headed by Khyber Agency Political Agent Captain (Retd) Khalid Mehmood that provision of basic facilities to the FATA people was top priority of the government. He said billions of rupees are being spent on different rehabilitation and reconstruction projects in FATA.

The delegation informed Mr Jhagra about problems of their area and also presented suggestions for resolution of these problems. The governor assured that all the genuine problems will be resolved.
