If help not comes in two weeks, we will appeal for world help

Torkoh PC Speaking at a press conference here, retired Subedar Ibrahim Wali, Fazal Elahi, retired Subedar Dinar Khan on behalf of the 68 flood-hit families said they were rendered homeless and penniless by the floods but even after over five months the government did nothing for their rehabilitation except handing each of the family one lac rupees cheque. They lamented that for the last over five months, the 68 displaced families were passing their days and nights at the barren Qaqlasht plateau along with women and children without basic amenities of life such as drinking water and medicines. They said with the start of the severe cold season and rain/snowfall, their lives had become more miserable with the tents unable to provide them even shelter and protection against cold winds. “There is no one who can even come and inquire about our conditions, what our people are eating, drinking and what problems we are facing.” They said the displaced families were still alive thanks to the cooperation and help extended to them by the area people and their relatives, friends and well wishers. They said the people of Muzgol also lost their homes and other properties and the government like the earthquake-hit people should pay Rs200,000 to each family to rebuild their homes. The flood-hit people’s representatives also regretted that despite announcements of relief by the prime minister, chief of the army staff and payment of Rs50 million to the district government by opposition leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah, the flood-devastated people of Muzgol were paid no compensation. They asked the KP government to provide Rs100,000 to each of the affected family besides food items for at least one year.–With reporting by Bashir Hussain Azad]]>
