PESHAWAR: The Fata Students Federation on Monday expressed concern over the closure of educational institutions in different tribal regions, urging the government to ensure increase in admission quota for tribal students in all the professional colleges.
Addressing a news conference at the Peshawar Press Club, Fata Students Federation Chairman Haroon Luqman and President Maseet Khan Afridi said that students belonging to various tribal agencies had suffered due to lawlessness and many of them could not complete their education.
They said that despite facing many problems, the students of Fata had not been compensated so far. They said even the routine scholarships were also paid to them either.
They urged the elected representatives of Fata to play their role and raise voice for rights of the students.
The office-bearers suggested that the political agents of different tribal regions should be directed to ensure provision of educational facilities and financial support to the needy students.
Besides, the students’ leaders demanded the government to extend local government laws to the Fata so that the people of various tribal regions could also play their role in the development of their respective areas.
