Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif on Tues­day said the govern­ment would en­sure re­turn of Tem­po­rar­ily Dis­placed Peo­ple to their na­tive ar­eas with hon­our and re­spect.

He was talk­ing to Iqbal Za­far Jha­gra, des­ig­nated Gov­er­nor KPK who called on him here at the PM House. The Prime Min­is­ter said the en­tire na­tion in gen­eral and the peo­ple of FATA in par­tic­u­lar, de­serve due recog­ni­tion for their sup­port in the war against ter­ror­ism. The Prime Min­is­ter ex­pressed the hope that the new Gov­er­nor will con­tinue to work for the de­vel­op­ment and wel­fare of the peo­ple of FATA and KP.

He said the govern­ment was com­mit­ted and re­solved to bring FATA at par with rest of the coun­try and pro­vid­ing all fa­cil­i­ties. The Prime Min­is­ter wished Iqbal Za­far Jha­gra well on the as­sign­ment. The Gov­er­nor-des­ig­nate thanked the Prime Min­is­ter for re­pos­ing trust in him by nom­i­nat­ing him as Gov­er­nor Khy­ber Pukhtunkhwa (KP) and said he would con­tinue the work ini­ti­ated by his pre­de­ces­sor for im­prov­ing con­di­tions in FATA.

Mean­while, Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif Tues­day said the fed­eral govern­ment will ex­tend full sup­port to the lo­cal govern­ment to un­der­take de­vel­op­men­tal projects in the Cap­i­tal and pro­vi­sion of best fa­cil­i­ties in its ru­ral and ur­ban ar­eas.

Talk­ing to Mayor of Is­lam­abad Sheikh An­sar Aziz who called on him here at the PM House, he con­grat­u­lated the first ever mayor of the cap­i­tal. The Prime Min­is­ter ex­pressed the hope that un­der his lead­er­ship the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Is­lam­abad will work hard for im­proved fa­cil­i­ties for the peo­ple in the ru­ral and ur­ban ar­eas of the cap­i­tal. PM said be­ing the cap­i­tal of Pak­istan, Is­lam­abad needs spe­cial at­ten­tion and care. He re­gret­ted that the cap­i­tal was un­for­tu­nately ne­glected in the past, which led to break down and ne­glect of civic fa­cil­i­ties.
