Asfandyar criticises Fazl, Achakzai for opposing KP-FATA merger


HARNAI: Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali on Friday criticised politicians for opposing the merger of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA.

Only Jamaat-e-Ulema Islam-Fazl chief Fazlur Rehman and Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai oppose the merger, Wali lamented while addressing a rally here.

“Why are those who chant slogans about creating a Pashtoon state stretching from Bolan to Chitral oppose the merger,” the ANP chief asked.

Criticising Achakzai, Wali said that he managed to get NWFP’s name changed to KP when he made an alliance with the party in centre, while Achakzai used his alliance with ruling party to make his own brother the governor of Balochistan.

He also slammed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan for introducing politics of abuse in the country.

The ANP chief vowed to continue working for constitutional supremacy, rule of law as well as rights of Pashtoons.
