Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that the collective efforts by federal and provincial governments and departments were inevitable to ensure the early rehabilitation of the people.

He urged the KP government to enhance the compensation of the existing Rs 0.8 million for the deceased to Rs1 million to bring it at par with that of the provincial government.

He highlighted that the federal government had increased the cash assistance for injured people from Rs25,000 to 250,000 and had also announced a similar compensation of Rs0.5 million for both mud and concrete houses damaged completely and Rs 0.2 million for partially hit ones.
