      ISLAMABAD: Deputy Chairman Senate Mir Jan Muhammad Khan Jamali has sought more assistance for the flood-stricken people of Balochistan and observed that people of the area need help for at least next eight months to survive and stand on their feet completely.

      He was talking to a team of medical professionals from Germany, who called on him at the Parliament House, on Friday. It is pertinent to mention here that the team carried out relief activities particularly in the medical field in district Jaffarabad (Osta Muhammad) in Balochistan for more than a month.

      He said that the team stayed in Balochistan for more than a month and carried out relief work in the far-flung areas of Balochistan without any security concern. Members of the German delegation also expressed their satisfaction over their visit and observed that Pakistan was a peaceful country and they would carry a message of peace and love with them.

      Later, the delegation also visited the National Assembly and Senate Halls where the deputy chairman Senate informed them about the working of both the houses and the role played by the two houses of parliament in legislation and policy making.
