Thousands of residents once again demonstrated in the Lakki Marwat district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) to raise concerns against resurgence in terrorism in the province.

They urged the authorities to remove the curse and restore peace by crushing the terrorists.

wami National Party (ANP) district president Malik Ali Sarwar Khan, Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) district president Amirzada Khattak, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) district amir Azizullah Khan, Inamullah Khan, Engineer Ehsanullah, and Chairman Ali Khan all joined the peace rally.

They addressed the rally attendees and stated that Lakki Marwat has an abundance of natural resources.

They emphasized that despite the presence of oil, gas, and limestone reserves, there was still no system in place to compensate the district for its royalties. They claimed that the district’s problems were caused by a mafia with roots in Sindh and Punjab.

“Poverty is pervasive in the area, and these initiatives don’t offer work to locals either. Local resources are not being used to benefit the local population,” they remarked, adding that it is regrettable that a situation similar to Waziristan is developing in the district.

Locals on both sides are being slain, and there is no end in sight to these things, so we will not allow anyone to disturb the calm of the neighborhood.

To exert the most pressure on the government, the protesters also asked political workers, social activists, and local citizens to join them.
