KHYBER AGENCY  - FATA Political Alliance (FPA) would hold a demonstration in the bazaar on the arrival of the FCR reforms committee to Jirga Hall Landi Kotal on Monday.

These views were expressed by Khyber Political Alliance in a press conference held in Landi Kotal press club on Sunday.

Shah Faisal Afridi, president Khyber Political Alliance flanked by General Secretary Gul Raees, leaders of Pakistan People’s Party Babu Khan, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Zerbullah shinwari, Jamaat-e-Islami leader Murad Hussain, representatives of the members of parliament Bashir Afridi, Faridullah and Said Ali said that the administration has invited maximum number of anti-FCR elders in gathering organized for the reforms committee to press it to abolish the draconian law, adding that the law would face a terrible failure. 

The tribesmen have suffered a lot under FCR and are not ready to be ruled under it, they added.

The alliance leaders said that a public gathering has been planned to set up in Landi Kotal bazaar on Monday to attract attention of the members of the reforms committee to take notice of their views that tribesmen have united to abolish FCR.

They also criticized the political administration for not inviting enough political parties and members of the civil society to the moot, which was equivalent to deprive them of their right of expression.
