Decade long plan for development of tribal districts, under consultation


Bara: Members of a consultation team held a meeting on the provincial government’s 10 year development plan for merged districts of FATA and KPK. The matter of discussion had been that government should start the development plan from scrape. It is because of the decade long militancy that left the infrastructure damaged.

Prioritizing education, health, drinking water and roads, 68 schools in Bara subdivision are to be rebuilt. Job generation will be the focus for people who lost businesses because of displacement.

Government should exempt the tribal districts from taxes for 30 years and declare tax-free zones, said Murad Saqi.

Abdul Ghani Afridi, a senior leader of ruling Party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf also expressed the need for government to give interest-free loans to tribal people.
