Tribal People’s Issues To Be Resolved With Their Consultation: PM

PESHAWAR: The Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Saturday that the problems of the tribal people will be solved with their consultation as they had rendered great sacrifices for the restoration of peace in the area.

PM Imran made these views while addressing to Tribal Jirga in Peshawar during his day-long visit.

“Government is trying to avoid disturbing the traditions and lifestyle of the native people in the new system,” he said adding that tribal people left their homes only for the sake of peace.

He mentioned that to make the new system successful the monitoring will continue to keep eyes on the progress.

Imran Khan said alternative dispute resolution system worked well in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during the last five years and it will also be implemented in merged tribal districts.

He said the local government system is also close to the older system that worked in tribal areas for a long time. He said every village will be provided funds and people will be empowered at the grass root level.

The Prime Minister said with the increased number of seats, the people of tribal areas will get more representation in both federal and provincial governments.

He said the tribal people have given huge sacrifices for the peace in the motherland and all their issues will be resolved.

The Prime Minister appreciated the role of tribal elders and leaders and said they preserved peace in their areas.

In his address, Prime Minister said seats for tribal districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly have been enhanced so that the tribal people could have a strong representation at the federal and provincial level.

Imran Khan said the merger of former FATA in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was a challenging job but we have to make it a success with the cooperation and consultation of tribal people.

The Prime Minister lauded the sacrifices of the tribal people in the war against terror.

He said they have suffered a lot due to terrorism.
