Rural reconstruction yet to begin in flood devastated Sindh: Altaf


Pasban Democratic Party PDP Chairman Altaf Shakoor here Sunday regretted that the flood-hit areas in Sindh still await rural reconstruction process, suggesting that the government of Sindh should establish a rural reconstruction department with an immediate effect.

He said Sindh awaits an immediate rural reconstruction process but the government is not providing resources for it and private NGOs, political parties and philanthropists have also lost interest in rehabilitation of the flood affectees.

He said millions of the rural affectees need urgent assistance to reconstruct their damaged houses. They need seed, fertilizer and other agriculture inputs to sow Rabi crops, especially wheat. He said the government of Pakistan, as well as, Sindh has not allocated the required resources to begin the rural rehabilitation and reconstruction process.

He said international lenders are not forgiving Pakistani loans in the wake of this huge humanitarian crisis which show the inhuman attitude of these blood sucking leeches. He said the world community has also turned cold shoulder towards the Pakistanis and even our friendly countries are not playing the role of a fast friend to assist the Pakistani nation in this testing time.
