The Senate Standing Committee on States and Frontier Regions (SAFRON) on Tuesday discussed the issues faced by the merged tribal districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

Meeting of the Senate Body on SAFRON held at Old PIPS Hall, Parliament Lodges under the chair of Senator Hilal-ur-Rehman discussed the point of public importance raised by Senator Hidayat Ullah regarding the problems arising in merged districts after merger. Senator Hidayat Ullah informed the Committee that there is not even a single primary school in my district. He stated that without education to the children, eradication of terrorism is not possible in the erstwhile FATA.

While discussing the implementation of commitments made by Federal Government for Fata, the officials of Ministry of Finance told the Committee that after the 25th Constitutional amendment, Ministry work is only to deliver funds to province and has nothing to do with its implementation.
