Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said the PTI government will play its role for ensuring the provision of due share to erstwhile Fata in the National Finance Commission (NFC) award, Radio Pakistan reported.

PM Khan was chairing a meeting in the federal capital to monitor the progress on administrative and other matters subsequent to the merger of Fata with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Following the merger of Fata, the administrative and other matters should also be resolved in such a manner that people should not face any difficulties, the premier said.

The meeting was briefed that a number of departments of Fata Secretariat have been transferred to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.

These departments include education, Zakat, Ushar, social welfare and population welfare; whereas, the process of shifting other departments is underway.

Moreover, a special committee has been formed under the supervision of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister to prepare a ten-year plan for the development of the areas which have been recently merged with KP.
