KP CM blames centre for ignoring province


Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan has expressed grave concern over the indifference of Federal Government towards the flood affectees in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa stating that the rehabilitation of roads and restoration of power supply lines is the domain of Federal government but no efforts have been witnessed in this regard so far. He added that the provincial government is capable enough to look after its own people but the insolent attitude of Federal Government will not go unchecked.

During his visit to District Kohistan and Shangla, the Chief Minister distributed cash cheques among the injured and families of people who lost their lives in the recent floods. In response to public grievances in District Kohistan, the Chief Minister directed the concerned authorities to ensure aerial evacuation of people who have been stuck in inaccessible locations adding that no stone will be left unturned by the provincial government to rescue and rehabilitate its citizens. The Chief Minister clarified that the current provincial government is representative of its people and repatriation of people to their homes is the top most priority.

The Chief Minister was informed that a total of 18 lives were lost in District Lower Kohistan whereas five persons sustained injuries. Similarly, five lives were lost in District Upper Kohistan and five sustained injuries. Besides one mosque, one madrassa, one DHQ and a hotel have been fully damaged in Upper Kohistan. Assessment of damages to other infrastructure would be completed very soon. The Chief Minister was informed that all medical facilities have been made available in the relief camps to look after the medical requirements of the flood affectees.
