Relief activities in full swing in rain-hit areas
Concerned authorities and departments directed to speed up rescue and relief activities.
Relief activities are in full swing in the rain-hit areas.
Participating in Nuqta-e-Nazar program of Radio Pakistan, Dr. Muhammad Hanif said: “Heavy rains are not expected during the next few days. Weather is now dry in flood affected areas. The flood water will enter in Sindh in four to five days. India released flood water without prior notice that resulted in heavy casualties and destruction of property.”
Representative NDMA Ahmed Kamal said: “Indus Water Treaty exists since 1960 between India and Pakistan. Under this agreement, India is bound to provide prior information about the releasing of large flow of water. Water level in all rivers has reached to danger limit. In some areas, obstacles had to be removed to allow water to flow. Flood emergency has been imposed in Punjab and all departments are monitoring the situation. People have been directed to move to safer areas. Situation in Muzaffargarh, Multan and other areas could be controlled with better planning.”
Analyst Akbar Sher Babar said: “6th and 7th September have an important place in Pakistan’s history. The nation displayed an exemplary unity and spirit which boosted the morale of the army and they won the war with their strong religious convictions. Late singer Madam Noor Jehan’s songs gave new impetus to the soldiers fighting at the front lines. We pray for the recurrence of same spirit in the nation, so that all internal and external enemies of the country are defeated.”
