Chandio urges PML-N govt to activate NDMA, Wapda and IRSA for expected floods

Karachi—Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh for Information and Archives, Moula Bux Chandio said on Saturday that PML-N government should activate National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), IRSA and Wapda in real manner as part of expected flood protection measures and pro-vide sufficient funds to Sindh for strengthening Indus River’s dyes.
“Though this is the main work of federal government to strengthen dykes of In-dus River, take precautionary measures and allocate all required emergency funds in view of expected floods and rain-devastations, but this work is being alone done by Sindh government. The Centre have deprived Sindh of due share in funds including those for flood protection, while share from gas and oil re-sources have also been reduced by 50%, which is great injustice”.
He said the province has even been deprived of payment of the curtailed share since last three years.
He said the PML-government also seems lethargic to ac-tivate NDMA, IRSA and Wapda in real manner as these national institutions need to prepare a joint national action plan and coordinate with the provincial governments, including Sindh. The federal government needs to provide neces-sary technical assistance and special financial assistance to Provincial Disaster Management Authority (Sindh) for tackling expected floods, he said. —INP
