PESHAWAR, 11 November: Member National Assembly from Bajaur Agency Shahabuddin Khan has tendered resignation from the National Assembly to record his protest with the prime minister over ignoring the earthquake affected people of the region.
Shahabuddin Khan has handed over his resignation to the prime minister’s adviser Amir Muqam which will be sent to the PM. The tribal lawmaker said he was resigning because the earthquake affected people of Bajaur Agency did not get adequate assistance from the government in this hour of need. He added that the government was not cooperating with the tribal lawmakers for abolishing the controversial British-era Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) law.
There were reports that Mr Shahabuddin was also disappointed with the attitude of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan towards him, which prompted him to resign.
