Decision of KP-FATA merger not to be reversed: KP governor

ISLAMABAD: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Governor Shah Farman has said that the decision regarding merger of Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA) in KP province will not be reversed and Prime Minister Imran Khan had ensured for provision of due share of FATA in the National Finance Commission (NFC) award.

Talking to a private news channel, he said 98 per cent work on merger of FATA had been done and judiciary as well as police system would be provided to the people of the area.

The governor rejected the misperception about ending of quota for students of FATA, saying those who were denying the admission were doing wrong.

He said the government was taking decisions for the benefits of majority of the people rather to favour a few people. Those who were opposing FATA merger had their personal interests, the governor added.

He said he had never demanded any position for his personal interest.

Replying to a question, he said the role of governor and chief minister was clearly mentioned in the constitution of the country. The CM and he were on the same page and had best relations, he said.

Shah Farman said Pakistan was taking measures to make its border with Afghanistan more secure through fencing and wanted to make specific points of entrance in order to check terrorist activities.
