Islamabad—Minister for States and Frontier Regions, Lt. Gen. (R) Abdul Qadir Baloch Tuesday said the whole nation acknowledged sacrifices rendered by the people of FATA for the country. Speaking on a point of order in National Assembly, he said FATA reforms would be introduced as soon as possible. The issue of up gradation of teachers in FATA would be resolved on priority basis, he added. He said people of FATA had always played a role of soldiers for the country, adding that FATA people had set history in 1948 by sacrificing their lives for Pakistan.
The country never needed to deploy forces on its western borders as the FATA people defended it during two wars with neighboring country India, he said. Abdul Qadir said a former dictator invited an alien war in 2007 and FATA people again rendered sacrifices and left their homes. He said the Prime Minister had formally given approval for the up gradation of FATA teachers. Minister for States and Frontier Regions Lt.
