Karachi
Adviser to the Sindh Chief Minister Sharmila Farooqui has said that the government has taken all political parties, media and civil society organisations on board to tackle the situation emerging after the devastating floods.
“This is high time for all political forces to rise above their political affiliations, shun petty differences and make concerted efforts along the government for providing relief to people. There is a need to forge unity for the rescue and relief of the affectees,” she said in a statement on Tuesday.
Sharmila said the floods have destroyed about 1.4 million houses, damaged crops standing on millions of acres and caused death of over 1,700 people throughout the country.
The government, she said, has approached the United Nations for help and hoped it would come forward and help Pakistan to tackle floods.
She said that the government is taking effective steps to provide relief to the flood-hit people without any discrimination of caste, creed or color.
