Hungry people loot flood relief items at a camp in Jhang

JHANG/KARACHI(NNI): Hungry and annoyed people looted relief items at a flood relief camp and those finding nothing in the exercise then started snatching the bags of goods from the lucky ones who could get hold of a few.

According to reports, Jhang district administration made a large number of people to wait under the sun from 10am till 1pm telling them that provincial chief minister would distribute relief items among them.

That was too much for the patience of the poor people who were without food for the last three days due to raging floods in their area. The administration had kept some relief bags in tents and a truck load of items was waiting for the chief minister to distribute the goods. They could not wait for long as Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was visiting another flood affected area.

The people suddenly started looting the goods by boarding the truck. It was a free for all as the police looked helplessly. Others who had knowledge of stored relief items rushed to the camps and took away every thing. Still many who could not get the booty started snatching from those who managed to get some relief items.

In the meantime, the chief minister reached the camp and directed the administration to bring in more relief goods for the affected people. He made a brief address to the affectees and assured them that the government would meet all their needs. He also took serious notice of short supply.

People complained that while there were five lakh affected people, the administration brought five to seven thousand of packets of relief items that were quite insufficient.

Meanwhile, Shifting of the people from Katcha area in Sindh to safer places continues as flood water level is increasing Guddu Barrage.

Irrigation authorities said in Karachi water influx at Guddu Barrage was recorded as over two hundred and seventy thousand and at Sukkur over one hundred sixty thousand cusecs this morning.

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has said all Barrages on river Indus are stable and the flow of water will pass away easily through these Barrages.

Divisional Commissioner Larkana told that ninety-eight relief and medical camps have been set up for flood affectees in five Districts of the Division
