JI Ameer wants status of province for FATA (The Nation (Pakistan))

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government needs to grant status of a separate province to FATA and immediately conduct local bodies’ elections in the tribal belt, Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami said yesterday.

The tribal are more faithful to their motherland and have rendered countless sacrifices for their motherland, Sirajul Haq said.

Criticizing the federal government for neglecting the tribesmen, Siraj said, Last year only Rs 19 billions were allocated for FATA while for projects like Metro bus, Nawaz regime had reserved Rs 43 billions which is regrettable.

Western border of Pakistan was safe by the bravery of tribesmen and not by the warplanes of the country, JI ameer added.

If the FCR was a better law then it should be imposed in the whole country, he argued.

Since the creation of Pakistan the rulers of Pakistan have been betraying the blood of martyrs and the ideology of Pakistan that cannot be pardoned, Siraj remarked.

Sirajul huq said this while addressing Youth Sports Festival ceremony, which was organized by Khyber Sports Club with the assistance of Shabab Milli on the occasion of Independence Day.
