ISLAMABAD, 21 September: State and Frontier Regions (Safron) Minister Abdul Qadir Baloch on Thursday said that Fata Reforms Package would be finalized within next 10 days..

The announcement was made in response to a point of order raised by MNA from Khyber Agency Shah Jee Gul Afridi during National Assembly session.

Afridi thanked the prime minister for forming Accreditation Committee that comprised of army chief, CM KP and other members but expressed annoyance that not a single person from Fata was included in it.

He threatened that if the reforms package was not finalized he would march along with thousands of tribesmen towards Islamabad.

Baloch replied that the committee was formed after consultation with Fata’s parliamentarians, adding that all stakeholders agreed upon the reforms.

He said that FCR would be abolished and every year Fata would be given Rs100 billion development package.
