RAWALPINDI: President Pervez Musharraf has said that peace and development in the backward areas of FATA should be in line with the wishes of the tribal people, who want to see the region come at par with other developed areas of the country. He made these remarks while talking to a delegation of FATA MNAs who called on him here on Thursday

The President emphasized that this was possible only when there was total peace and harmony in that area. Therefore, the President underscored the need for strengthening the local political and administrative structure.

The members of the delegation said that during his wide interaction with world leaders, think-tanks and media, President Musharraf successfully removed the misperception that had been created by a section of the Western media about FATA. They said that effective social service delivery should be ensured through improvement of existing and creation of new infrastructure, opening up of new areas and creation of economic opportunities through improved network of roads and bridges to create more job opportunities and to contribute to the social emancipation of the local people.-SANA
