Peshawar: In a piece of recent news, the elders of Bajaur, Sarkani, Durrani, and Galikhel say that a former governor took their land unlawfully and that the district administration backed him up.
Maulvi Gul Zain, Hejran, Haji Bahadur, Abdul Ali, Sahib Gul, Haji Fateh Gul Jan, Haji Abdul Hamid, and Haji Mohammad Rehman, speaking at a news conference at Peshawar Press Club on Monday, said they would lift this injustice in every platform.

They said they dispatched a jirga to meet with the former governor to resolve the matter, but that he failed to do so. The elders said that they had regularly informed the appropriate authority, but that little had been done to resolve the issue.
They said the lease of over 200 acres of land was unconstitutional, but the former governor acquired 3194 acres of land during his tenure without consulting the citizens or the owners.
