Lahore, August 24, 2022 (PPI-OT):A PTI leader and former federal minister Parvez Khattak met with Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi at his office and discussed matters of mutual interest including rehabilitation of flood affectees. Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain and former federal minister Moonis Elahi were also present.
Parvez Elahi pointed out that line departments have been fully mobilized for the rehabilitation of the flood victims. The government has announced a special aid package; a waiver of water and land revenue charges in flood-hit areas by declaring them calamity-hit as the provincial government was firmly standing with the flood victims, he said. Meanwhile, I went to Rajanpur and Taunsa to meet the victims and assess the situation, he added.
The Punjab government has provided the best possible resources for the rehabilitation of the victims. Pakistan Army teams are also helping the civil administration in their rescue and relief operations; the CM said and thanked Corps Commander Multan and Pakistan Army for their timely support.
Similarly, the services of police, administration, PDMA and rescue 1122 are also commendable as the rescue teams of the Punjab government are reaching out to every affected person; he mentioned and maintained that this is the time to go beyond mundane politics and help the distressed denizens. It is a pity that the PMLN has not stopped politics even on an issue like a flood as the politicization of human lives is the usual modus operandi of the PMLN.
There is no fear of Allah Almighty in their hearts, nor the pain of suffering humanity, he lamented. Parvez Khattak praised the steps taken by the Punjab government under the leadership of CM Parvez Elahi for helping the flood victims on time.
