Consolidate Integration of FATA with KP
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
We will ensure equal rights and respect for the residents of tribal areas by consolidating FATA’s merger with KP and allocating special development funds for this purpose
The people of the tribal areas have lagged behind in socioeconomic and human development due to the prolonged neglect by the state, which has resulted in developing a sense of deprivation and mistrust. Moreover, the tribal areas have experienced the worst violence since 9/11 in the form of drone attacks, military operations against terrorists, and suicide attacks by militants. This has resulted in the killing of thousands of civilians and law enforcement personnel, and loss to property worth billions of rupees.
Now that the law for integrating FATA with KP has been passed by the parliament, we will ensure that the integration takes place smoothly.
We will hold local body elections in 2018 to empower people right down to the village council level.
We will launch a Mega Development Plan by allocating 3% of federal divisible pool on annual basis by fully associating the people in formulation and execution of the plan.
We will ensure job creation in the tribal areas, especially with investments to harness natural resources of the region.
