40 percent flood-hit people in Sindh may not be able to cultivate crops

  • Flood-hit communities have expressed their dissatisfaction over relief and recovery efforts in the provinces devastated by the 2010 and 2011 floods and warned that millions of poor people may be affected as a result of the flawed preparedness and early warning systems.

    They expressed these views during a People's Tribunal on Challenges in Flood Relief and Recovery in Pakistan, organised by Participatory Development Initiatives (PDI) in collaboration with Oxfam held at local hotel at Islamabad, according to a press release issued here on Friday.


  • They should vote to PPP once again and then again so that their lands might also be ruined. After that they should raise slogan of "jeay Bhutto and jeay zardari".

    Very rightful expression! Floods are caused over the poor people to attract foreign and domestic aid. The aid goods are mostly looted by already privileged MNAs and MPAs.
