ISLAMABAD: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly on Wednesday adopted a resolution with majority vote to merge Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in KP.

The resolution was tabled by PTI lawmaker Dr. Haider Ali which was adopted in absence of Leader of the House and the Opposition Leader. It is to mention that FATA Political Alliance (FPA) has also called upon the government one day ago for immediate merger of Tribal Areas into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) without any further delay. In tribal Jirga, the FPA demanded the announcement of a comprehensive fiscal relief package for rehabilitation and reconstruction of damaged infrastructure in Tribal Areas besides population census, and local bodies elections in tribal regions.

Tabled by JUI-F lawmaker Mufti Fazl Ghafoor, the House unanimously adopted a resolution to condemn the killing of innocent people in Yemen and Syria. It also demanded of the federal government to use diplomatic forums to bring peace to these countries, especially by motivating the Human Rights Organizations.

The House took up two Calling Attention Notices (CANs). The first CAN was to enhance funds for the construction of road from Daggar to Gokand while the notice was about regularization of female teachers appointed through NTS in the province and their appointment in native cities.

Six out of 12 Starred Questions appearing on the agenda were taken up and responded to by relevant authorities while lawmakers also asked five supplementary questions. Five questions remained unaddressed due to movers’ absence and one was deferred due to ministerial absence.

The treasury lawmakers protested against the federal government for not allowing the delegation of British High Commission to visit Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by wearing black arm bands around their arms.

A PTI lawmaker Amjad Khan Afridi protested for five minutes against non-allocation of development funds and not getting royalty on natural gas. He lodged protest by sitting in front of the Chair.

The House adopted report of the Public Accounts Committee for the year 2012-13 while it also witnessed presentation of a report by Standing Committee on Administration Department. Later, the House was adjourned to meet again on Friday.
