HYDERABAD (INP): Sindh Minister for Information and Local Government, Sharjeel Inam Memon has said that around seven Lac cusecs of flood is expected in Sindh for which government is capable enough to handle.

“There is no need to worry but I would urge people living in Katcha area to vacate the homes at the earliest and move to safer places or camps set up by Provincial Disaster Management Authority ?(PDMA),” he said and added that the PDMA had already made necessary arrangements of tents, food and medicines.
He said he had visited various protective bands and except a few portions most of the bands have been strengthened. “The vulnerable points are being monitored and their strengthening work is in progress,” he assured.
