Lahore: “While expressing deep sorrow over the physical and financial losses of people of Southern Punjab and Sindh due to heavy rains, APML has termed federal provincial governments (Punjab and Sindh) responsible for all losses and said that governments are inefficient that’s why huge losses occurred once again as happened during the floods of 2010 and heavy rains of 2011”.
Sam Dada said this in a statement issued here from Secretariat of APML.
She said that entering of rain water in DG Khan City is a clear example of inefficiency of Punjab government that they (government) even don’t have knowledge when water was rushing towards the city.
She said that Punjab government always played a role of step-mother with districts of southern Punjab that’s why they were sleeping deeply and rain water was disturbing the comfort of people of DG Khan.
In an other statement issued from central secretariat ,information secretary Aasia Ishaq comment on Sindh’s situation and said that though, provincial government has declared rain emergency in the province but they didn’t take measures to shift innocent rain-affected families to the safer places.
She stressed over the government to take war-footing measures and guide the people that how they could be protected from the losses of heavy rains.
She recalled that after the super floods of 2010, Sindh government had utilized billions of rupees over the rehabilitation of Indus and non-Indus dykes but breaches in these dykes are telling us the stories of corruption.
Aasia said that recent heavy rains had destroyed the standing crops of millions of rupees in Sindh and southern Punjab and a large number of people have also been died/washed away.
“Government should come forward immediately to save millions of people from further irreparable losses of heavy rains particularly shifting of rain victims to safer places”, she demanded.
In the last, Aasia Isehaq appealed well-to-do people from every walk of life to play their effective role in helping the rain-affected people of Sindh and Southern Punjab.
