Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA and leader of the opposition in the Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh negated the claims of the Sindh government regarding provision of 2.5 million mosquito nets among the flood-affected people of the province.

He said the reality did not corroborate the government’s claims as homeless flood victims had neither tents nor any protection against mosquitoes while living under the open sky.

Accrding to a statement issued by the PTI, the Sindh Assembly opposition leader met flood victims in Jamshoro and provided them relief items, including mosquito nets, on Sunday morning.A large number of displaced people informed him that they had been living without shelter and had not got any aid even though they belonged to the home district of the Sindh chief minister.Sheikh said the claim of the Sindh government that it had distributed hundreds of thousands of tents and other relief items among the displaced flood victims was baseless.

He added that he had reached out to the homeless flood victims in Sindh after a considerable delay as he had to undergo a surgery in his injured leg after his undue imprisonment had come to an end.
