MIRPURKHAS: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has demanded from the government to provide Watan Card to the flood victims.
In Mirpurkhas, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, while talking to media on Saturday, said that the attention of the rulers of Islamabad was drawn to the wide-scale damage caused by rains and floods.
Distribution of rations will not solve the problems of the flood victims, he said, adding the PTI government must provide Watan Card to the flood victims as the PPP government did in 2011 in wake of worst floods.
Chairman Bilawal criticised the federal government for denying Sindh its rightful share under the NFC Award which was given Rs 200 bn less.
He said that he spent more time in Mirpur Khas, it is just the beginning, PPP MNAs, MPAs work hard on their own, there were losses in Mirpur Khas, Umerkot, Badin, Tharparkar, we have come to assess the losses in the affected areas, he added.
Bilawal Bhutto said that Asif Ali Zardari had given Watan cards to the victims in 2011. PPP cadres know how to protest for the right. He said that we will not allow the people of Sindh to be left destitute by the government.
Chairman PPP said that federal government did not give NFC shares to Sindh government, farmers of the country are worried due to rains, floods and locusts. This year, the Sindh government was given Rs200 billion less.
He said that small farmers should also be helped by declaring emergency. He said that poor farmers of the country could not bear huge loss and all should work together to solve the problems of the people.
Bilawal Bhutto said that PTI should compensate every farmer, Sindh government is trying to come up with a scheme for farmers, next time we will have political activities here, he added.
