LANDIKOTAL: JUIF FATA chapter demands for free elections

General Peshawar

Peshawar: JUIF FATA chapter demands early transfer of the top political administrator of Khyber Agency to ensure free, fair and transparent elections in Khyber Agency.

The top administrator has allegedly assured the former parliamentarians of Khyber Agency to support them in the upcoming elections in NA 45 and NA 46 only if they protect him PA Khyber to be retained on the same post, JUIF central council member and JUIF leader Qari Jehad Shah told this scribe on phone.

Political Agent PA Khyber Motahir Zib Khan has failed to maintain the law and order situation in Khyber Agency rather he has fanned violence in the agency through his inefficiency and ineligibility as the top administrator of Khyber Agency, JUIF FATA leader Qari Jehad Shah alleged, adding that PA Khyber was solely responsible for the bloodshed and corruption in the entire Khyber Agency.

JUIF leader regretted that disorder and corruption in all parts of Khyber Agency has disrupted routine life activities, which must be noticed.

This is impossible for the election commission to hold free, fair and transparent elections in Khyber Agency by and large in the presence of the corrupt and incompetent political agent, JUIF leader Qari observed, saying it is crystal clear that PA Khyber has sympathies with the former tribal parliamentarians of Khyber Agency.

If the top administrator tries to influence the upcoming elections in Khyber Agency, it would disappoint the masses in this part of FATA and would deprive the people of their choice to elect honest and dedicated representatives, Jehad Shad expressed his reservations, saying it is obviously clear that PA Khyber is involved in wide spread corruption and has garnered all powers to exploit the resources of Khyber Agency.

So far the top administrator has not taken any measures to create durable peace and begin development schemes in Khyber Agency, JUIF leader remarked, saying the top officer has pushed the masses to the wall by set asiding the genuine demands of the people for their basic rights. JIFF would be compelled to bring out its thousands of workers to the roads to lodge their protest if the Governor Khyber Pukhtunkhwa did not post him out of Khyber Agency in the best public interests.
