Repatriation of TDPs to begin from Feb 15: SAFRON minister



Minister for States and Frontier Regions Abdul Qadir Baloch said the process of repatriation and rehabilitation of temporarily displaced persons (TDPs) would begin from mid-February 15, and will be completed within one year, Radio Pakistan reported.

“Rs100 billion is needed for the repatriation and rehabilitation of two million IDPs,” the minister said, while addressing a press conference on Wednesday.

He said every possible step would be taken for their early rehabilitation.

“The government will compensate tribesmen for the losses they have suffered,” Baloch said.

He said there is one Operation Zarb-e-Azb going on in North Waziristan, while another will be started in the cities and streets of Pakistan to eliminate terrorists.

Baloch stressed the need of joint efforts to win the war against terrorism, urging the media to assist the police and civil administration in this war.
