ISLAMABAD/PESHAWAR: The Grand Tribal Jirga on Sunday demanded formation of a new province consisting of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

According to media reports, the Jirga comprising prominent tribal elders met at Peshawar’s Baghe Naran rejecting proposed constitutional amendment that seeks merger of the tribal areas with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

Speaking on the occasion, tribal elders said the proposed amendment prepared by the lawmakers representing FATA in the National Assembly and the Senate was not acceptable as tribesmen were not taken into confidence over the proposal.
