The protesters gathered near Peshawar Press Club here on Sunday and chanted slogans to demand early payment of the compensation amounts.

They also called for restoration of educational activities by rebuilding the schools damaged and destroyed during militancy and military operation against militants. The protesters said that further delay and corruption in the payment of compensation for the destroyed houses would no longer be tolerated.

They also called for immediate restoration of educational activities and restoration of the schools in Waziristan. The protesters said that people of Waziristan suffered a lot in the militancy and operation against militants but they were yet to be compensated.
