Preparations for FATA merger process on fast track: SAFRON Minister


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for States and Frontier Regions (SAFRON) Abdul Qadir Baloch on Friday said preparations for Federally Administrative Tribal Areas (FATA) merger were going on fast track and announcement of the merger could take a year or two.

“Merger is not possible without complete preparation, however the government is trying hard to complete the preparation and announce the merger during its tenure because it had work hard on the process so it wanted to take credit of this historical decision,” the minister said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.

The Deputy Chairman Planning Commission Sartaj Aziz was also present on the occasion.

Sartaj Aziz said presently there were not any administrative, financial or political hurdles in way of the merger and the federal government was fully implementing all the recommendations made by the FATA Reforms Committee in January 2017.
