Kisan Board Pakistan (KBP) has urged formation of a commission supervised by the Judiciary and registered growers’ organisations as its members to monitor the assistance being extended by the government to flood affectees in the country.
KBP Central President Sardar Zafar Hussein Khan, General Secretary Malik Muhammad Ramzan Rohari and Central Secretary Information Haji Muhammad Ramzan in a joint statement issued here on Thursday said that the information reached to the Board had revealed that the official facts and figures regarding havoc played by the recent floods did not reflect the true picture of the damages and losses.
They said assistance announced by the government was also not seen either as hundreds of thousand of people were stranded under open sky. KBP leaders alleged that transparent assistance division could not be ensured under the present rulers. They demanded a commission supervised by the judiciary and growers’ organisation as its members so that assistance could be reached to the true deserving people.
KBP Central President also convened meetings of all the four provinces to tabulate true facts and figures of flood affectees, pace up the Kissan camps’ assistance activities and monitoring the government support to the affectees. First meeting of Central Punjab will be held on August 23 in Lahore, Second on August 24 in Punjab West, third in Sargodha on August 26 and fourth on August 27 in Multan.
