THE STATEMENT RELEASED ON THE TRANSPARENCY OF FLOOD RELIEF FUND
The Federal, Provincial, Gilgit-Baltistan governments and all the state institutions have been put forth with this inexorable demand that whichever country has extended its assistance in connection with flood relief, its details must be shared with the public. These views were expressed by SG Communist Party of Pakistan and Convener of the coalition of the Leftist Parties, i.e, The Progressive Alliance in a statement released to the Press. He vehemently insisted that aforementioned organs of the state are duty-bound to make the details of relief aid public by furnishing all the facts and figures, like which country in whatever form and size provided relief aid with complete data of cash and kind. The yardstick used by which to distribute the relief goods and money among the provinces struck by the calamity of the floods should also be brought to the light. The nation needs to be informed about the calamity-hit districts, the scale of damage and destruction and the compensatory measures taken by all responsible governments and institutions. To mitigate the suffering of the people it's necessary that the affected families must be purveyed all the amenities alongside concrete-made houses. The development projects should be initiated to provide jobs to the people.
Imdad Kazi further pointed out that China, UAE, kSA and other countries sent tents, blankets, medicine, milk, potable water and other essentials in great amount but all this stuff was never channeled to the deserved affectees that has rightly raised question mark on the performance, seriousness, responsibleness and governance of the government. On the face of it, nonavailability of the essential commodities has made thousands of children, women, elderly and the young vulnerable to the fatal diseases that are pushing them into the jaws of death.
Imdad Kazi, paid rich tribute to all organizations, youths and women who selflessly devoted their time and energies to the relief activities to save the humanity. He further called upon Imran Khan and PTI that the contributions they have received should be distributed among the provinces keeping in view the rate and intensity of the damage and destruction that have befallen the affected families and as such the relief assistance be ensured to reach them. He also put forward the demand to all the government and institutions of the country to honestly and without any discrimination ensure supply of medicines and foodstuff, clothing and shelter.
