FATA development

It is quite appreciable to note that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has emphatically reiterated that the mainstreaming of FATA and permanent rehabilitation of IDPs is the foremost priority of the government. According to the reports, the prime minister during a briefing by Ministry of SAFRON in Islamabad the other day said that the people of the tribal areas have paid the heaviest price in the war against militancy and terrorism and have rendered huge sacrifices for a national cause.
During the meeting, various measures being taken at the appropriate levels for the mainstreaming of FATA and bringing the people of the tribal areas at par with rest of the country through socio-economic development and uplift projects. It is good to note that out of 237000 (IDPs, now only 16000 families remain which are to be rehabilitated and about Rs 53 billion have so far been spent for the purpose of permanent rehabilitation of the displaced persons in a phased manner. Quite obviously this commendable performance of all those agencies and developments involved in the rehabilitation of the IDPs was duly appreciated by the PM on the occasion.
The good work being done in this regard should be continued with all sincerity and commitment ensuring permanent rehabilitation of all internally displaced persons at the earliest possible and prime minister should also be reviewing progress periodically in order to keep everyone on toes and ensure all IDPs return to their homes in a satisfactory manner, please.
