PESHAWAR, 14 July: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government says it has not been taken into confidence over the recommendations of the FATA Reforms Commission.
KP chief minister’s adviser on information Mushtaq Ghani said on Wednesday that reforms in FATA should be done according to the wishes of the area people. He said the federal government is bound to take the KP government into confidence before making any decision on the future of FATA. He said the KP government will soon contact the Centre in this regard.
Meanwhile, FATA Political Alliance leader Iqbal Afridi said black day will be observed on 14 August, the Independence Day of Pakistan, if the controversial Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) law was not abolished from FATA. He said the FATA people want abolishment of FCR and establishment of judicial system in the tribal areas.
