Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah on Thursday said that though entire country was affected by heavy rains and flood but Sindh province was more affected than other provinces.

Talking to newsmen here, he said that Sindh Govt would never leave flood victims alone.

“We needed 1.5 million tents after heavy rainfall for providing the shelter to the evacuated IDPs of different areas but unfortunately we couldn’t meet the requirements due to delivery issues of the goods”, he said.

He said that LBOD has mostly affected the people of Badin as it brought water of different districts including Shaheed Benazirabad, Sanghar, Mirpur Khas and Umerkot district. He said that LBOD was not designed for draining out the rainwater. Its design of water flow was fixed as 4600 cusecs but more than 12000 cusecs of water was crossing through LBOD which created havoc in the district Badin.

Murad appealed to the developed countries to come forward and assist flood affected people to alleviate their suffering.
