LAHORE: Acting central ameer Jamaat-e-Islami Liaquat Baloch has announced a protest in Lahore against Frontier Crimes Regulation in Fata and delay in implementation of Fata Reforms Bill.

Addressing a press conference here, he said that government itself was the major hurdle in way of Fata Reforms, adding that Parliament was supreme that don’t need any referendum on future of Fata.

“Policies of PML-N regarding Fata are not friendly rather based on envy and ill-will,” he said, adding that incumbent prime minister himself was confused keeping in view party’s internal rifts.

He added that JI would try its best to convince the government to merge Fata with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, extend jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and Peshawar High Court to Fata and a financial package for reconstruction and rehabilitation of damaged infrastructure of the areas.

“People of tribal areas have been facing deprivation and alienation since last 70 years in their own country. They are neither given equal rights nor treated equally under the Constitution of Pakistan that guarantees basic human rights,” he said.

He said that Senate and provincial assemblies were in supporting Fata’s merger with KP but the government was reluctant to appease an handful of vested elements who had no stakes in Fata.
