KARACHI, April 7: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari went into session with Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Party leaders over skype to personally inquire about the tragic situation following torrential rains, floods and landslides resulting in a brewing human disaster while both Federal and Provicnial governments sitting pathetically cross-legged and unmoved.
PPP leaders from Peshawar and other parts of the province informed the Party Chairman about total failure of NDMA and PDMA in understanding and addressing the woes of the huge number of population who turned homeless and are incommunicado following the rains and the ensuing devastations. Road communication to many villages and hamlets have broken and there was acute shortage of food and other items necessary for human life to survive. Electric system is in shambles but both the Federal and Provincial authorities seem unconcerned to the brewing tragedy, PPP Chairman was informed.
Bilawal Bhutto said that it was the duty of both the Federal and Provincial governments to take care of citizens hit by the perpetual natural disasters in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, FATA and other affected areas. But both these governments and their concerned authorities were ignoring the victims and their needs to survive, he added.
PPP Chairman said that the details of the situations being faced by the rain-ravaged people have pained him and the silence and indifference of the rulers towards the sufferings of our people was causing depression among all of us.
Those who participated in the Skype communication include PPP KPK President Senator Khanzada Khan, Ex-Governor Masood Kauser, Ex-MNA Noor Alam Khan, Najmuddin Khan, Rahimdad Khan, Sahir Shah, Azam Afridi and others. These Party leaders had gathered at PPP General Secretary Humayun Khan’s residence.
