ISLAMABAD: The federal government and tribal jirga Thursday announced the reopening of Tall-Parachinar road and all roads in Kurram Agency from February 5, which has been closed for the last four years. 
The tribal jirga held here with Federal Interior Minister Rehman in the chair. The jirga was attended by tribal elders from all agencies including MNA Sajid Hussain Turi, Munir Orakzai, Eng Shaukatullah, NA deputy speaker Faisal Karim Kundi, Malik Waris Khan and all large number of tribal elders. 
The jirga announced complete implementation of the Murree peace deal. It was decided that all the internally displaced persons would be helped in returning and rehabilitating in their respective villages. The government would pay compensation to the victims of the violence. About Rs1600 million have been allocated for the compensation to the victims. 
Federal Minister for Interior Rehman Malik on this occasion reprimanded the political agent of the Kurram Agency Syed Musadiq Shah and held him responsible for not reopening of the roads and violence and warned him of stern action if he failed in his duty. He said that all the tribesmen would be responsible for the security of roads in their respective areas, while the Frontier Corps and Frontier Constabulary would provide complete support to them. 
The Shia and Sunni tribal elders assured their complete support for implementation of the Murree peace deal and said that the government should show seriousness in restoration of complete peace.
Some tribal elders were of the view that if the government did not take decisive action against militants present in the area, then the security on roads would be impossible.
