The sit in of South Waziristan residents continued for second day in Peshawar who are demanding compensation for home that were destroyed during the military operations. The sit-in continued outside Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Assembly and the protesters threatened if their demands were not accepted then they will stage the next sit in outside Chief Minister House.
Addressing the participants the leaders of the protests said that in 2009 an operation was launched in the South Waziristan which forced them out of their homes and they accepted it for the safety of the country. “We spent the past 12 years in camps in very difficult situation. But when after more than a decade our people returned they found their houses and lands in ruins and government even launched a survey in 2016 in this regard but despite the passage of four years the survey is still underway and incomplete,” they said.
