Fundamental rights to FATA part of PPP manifesto: Gilani

Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani said on Saturday that the dispensation of the fundamental rights to the people of FATA is part and parcel of the PPP manifesto, stressing that the implementation of FATA reforms would be ensured. He said while addressing lawyers, jurists and intellectuals at a dinner which he hosted for the participants of a seminar “Dispensation of Justice- Challenges ahead” by Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) at the Governor House here.
Gilani said that the people who have waged war against extremism and terrorism in FATA and other areas would reap the dividends in the form of democracy and grant of fundamental rights, adding that the government was following the Charter of Democracy (CoD) and its manifesto in letter and spirit.
Prime Minister said if the success of a democratic government is assessed in the world by the implementation of its manifesto as well as the ballot, PPP government had implemented more than seventy percent of the CoD duly signed by Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and PML (N) Quaid Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and as much of its manifesto.
The Prime Minister assured the lawyers that the government would examine very carefully all the recommendations made in the seminar by the lawyers.
