Tribal leaders of PML-N warned the central leadership to stage ‘sit-in’ outside parliament


Peshawar: The tribal leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have warned the central leadership to stage ‘sit-in’ outside parliament if it did not dismiss incumbent Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor before Nov 30.

Speaking at news conference here at Press Club here on Monday, PML-N Fata President, Faqir Mohammad Afridi has blamed the Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Mahtab Ahmad Khan for lowering popularity of party in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (fata).

PML-Fata General Secretary, Dilawar Mehsud, Secretary Information, Noushad Khan, and representatives of all tribal agencies, were present in the conference.

Fariq Khan recalled the workers have rejoiced the appointment of PML-N KP Governor expecting he would address their problems on priority basis, but with the passage of time their dreams diminished due to indifferent attitude of local administration with workers.

Though, he said the mega development projects were initiated by Governor but the party activists were ignored. He said they conveyed reservations to Fata Coordinator and Prime Minister Special Assistant, Amir Muqam, but no to avail.

The PML-N Fata general secretary said they did not want separate group but want to strengthen party and alleged massive corruption in Annual Development Program (ADP).

“We have no other option but to launch protest movement against the Governor,” he said adding party workers across Fata will stage a ‘sit-in’ outside the parliament house on Nov 30, which will continue till the acceptance of their demands, including ouster of Governor, Mehtab Ahmad Khan.
