FATA Disgruntled Lawmakers Remove Shah Jee Gul As Parliamentary Leader


PESHAWAR, 6 May: The disgruntled parliamentarians of FATA have decided to removed Al-Haaj Shah Jee Gul Afridi from the position of parliamentary leader and replace him with Nasir Khan Afridi.

Sources said decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of FATA parliamentarians at the Parliament Lodges on Monday which was attended by Ghazi Gulab Jamal, Bismillah Jan, Bilal Rehman and Nasir Khan. Mr Afridi has been removed over differences on the issue of FATA reforms.

However, another group of the FATA lawmakers have refused to accept this decision and insisted that Shah Jee Gul is still their parliamentary leader.
