PESHAWAR, 20 December: The people of North Waziristan Agency affected from construction of Kurram-Tangi dam have opposed the construction of the dam.

North Waziristan students organisation, KabalKhel Students Society senior vice president Allauddin and other representatives said while addressing a press conference at Peshawar Press Club on Monday that Kurram-Tangi dam is being constructed for Lakki Marwat and Karak which will affect a number of villages in tehsil Shewa. They said instead of constructing a dam, the government should provide other basic facilities to the area people.

They threatened to hold protests if their demands were not fulfilled.
