Na­tion proud of FC for restor­ing peace in FATA

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

BAJAUR —Com­man­dant Bajaur Scouts Col Nay­yar Za­man on Sun­day praised the Fron­tier Corps (FC) for suc­cess­fully de­feat­ing mil­i­tants and restor­ing peace in the Fed­er­ally Ad­min­is­tered Tribal Ar­eas (FATA).

“The na­tion is proud of the Fron­tier Corps for its role in restora­tion of peace and sta­bil­ity in the tribal re­gion,” he said while ad­dress­ing the pass­ing out pa­rade of 132 FC re­cruits held here at Bajaur Scouts Train­ing Academy.The cer­e­mony was at­tended by tribal el­ders, mem­bers of peace com­mit­tees and of­fi­cials of se­cu­rity forces and lo­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Col Za­man said the his­tory of FC was full of un­for­get­table sac­ri­fices for the coun­try’s de­fence. It was a com­mit­ted force which al­ways showed ex­cep­tional per­for­mance in war ar­eas across FATA and it would con­tinue fight­ing mis­cre­ants and anti-state el­e­ments un­til they were elim­i­nated from the re­gion, he added.

He con­grat­u­lated the re­cruits on com­ple­tion of their train­ing course and asked them to ful­fill their re­spon­si­bil­ity with com­mit­ment. Com­plete peace and writ of the gov­ern­ment had been re­stored in the whole agency be­cause of the joint ef­forts of se­cu­rity forces and lo­cal peo­ple, he added.

He said that law and or­der sit­u­a­tion was un­der con­trol and no one would be al­lowed to dis­turb peace in the agency.

As many as 78 per­son­nel of quick re­sponse force unit of Bajaur Levies were also given ba­sic train­ing at the Bajaur Scouts Academy.—APP
