Fata women role in parliament sought

PESHAWAR: The civil society network, Fata, has demanded of the government to give proper representation to tribal women in parliament and provincial assemblies, and to take proactive steps for the provision of adequate facilities to Internally Displace Persons from Fata.

Speaking at a news conference here at the Press Club on Monday, the Civil Society Network, an NGO, coordinator Ghaniur Rahman Afridi said that though the incumbent government amended certain section in the FCR by extending Frontier Regulation Act 2011. But the amendments were not enough to mitigate the sufferings of tribal people, he added.

Flanked by tribal elders and representative of different NGOs, Afridi said that under the Fata reforms the tribal people especially women voters will be able to use their right to vote in upcoming elections.

Expressing grave concern over the lack of basic facilities to IDPs from Fata, he asked the government to provide adequate food items and other utensils to the uprooted people, at the makeshift camps.

He demanded a special compensation package for tribal IDPs and make proper arrangements to voluntarily repatriate the displaced families to their hometowns.
