    Federal Government decides to merge FATA into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

    ISLAMABAD – The PML-N led government is to merge Federally Administered Tribal Areas into Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province after an approval of almost all the parliamentary parties.

    As the federal cabinet managed to woo both the opposition and allies over the merger plan, the process of bringing Fata under the administrative control of the KP government will begin after Parliament’s approval.

    Fata is being governed by the British-era law called Frontier Crime Regulation (FCR) Act which legal experts say is a violation of universal human rights and contradicts the 1973 Constitution.

    The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) and Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) had expressed their reservations over the merger, but the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government managed to persuade the two parties for the plan. PML-N, Pakistan People’s Party, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Jamaat-i-Islami have demanded immediate merger of Fata with KP.

    Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which runs the KP government with the support of Jamaat-e-Islami, mainly supports the merger. “The best option is to become part of KP,” Imran said in December during a meeting with the tribal elders and politicians from Fata at the Chief Minister House, Peshawar.

    On Dec 15, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly also adopted a resolution in favor of Fata’s merger into the province. The resolution, moved by PTI lawmaker Dr Haider Ali, was adopted by a majority vote.

    “The house calls upon the federal government to merge the tribal areas into K-P according to the wishes of people, so that the area can reap the benefits of development,” it stated.

    However, the PTI chairman warned against taking hasty decisions and said changes should be made in phases. “The change in the administrative setup during the merger of Swat and Buner with K-P caused the birth of the Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat in the region,” he reminded.

    The proposed merger of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was finalized at a meeting, presided over by President Mamnoon Hussain, at the Presidency earlier this month.

    The cabinet was waiting for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to return from Davos before announcing the decision.

    Under the proposed plan, Fata would be put under the control of the provincial government through amendments to the Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR). An annual grant of Rs100 billion has also been proposed for Fata development under the proposed merger and the amount will be given from the federal divisible pool.

    Good decision, more schools, colleges and universities along with medical facilities and equal business and employment opportunities is what the brave people of FATA needed.

    Destruction of another civilization is complete by USA. Now these tribesmen will follow the rules of modern world. They will be slaves of slaves.

    IMHO this news is even bigger than the Ababeel MIRV test since more of MIRVs will be tested in future but this is a permanent decision which will have far reaching effects on the peace and stability of the country and development of this area (Ex-FATA) more education, more jobs, more development will permanently close the door for terrorism growth..

    Sir nothing like that will happen EVER. because if you look at the map, all the adjacent districts to FATA are that of Pakhtoon population. so don't worry. they will not lose there culture as it's the same at both sides.

    Exactly.

    Especially now criminals won't be able to take refuge there and since KPK police is the BEST police in Pakistan, FATA will be a no go area for criminals and safe area for normal people.

    Precisely.

    Now the first thing should be a complete package for FATA.

    i say , at-least

    600 Primary schools
    400 High schools
    40 colleges.
    2 Universities
    2 hospitals. (that of LRH scale)

    200 police stations.
    20,000 Police force.

    and one Army brigade permanently stationed somewhere in FATA. Parachinar due to it's strategic position will be a great pick.

    This the 100th time i just "heard" of s reform in FATA
    Anyway FATA should be separate province, shouldnt be merged with kpk in my opinion
