Permanent solution needed to counter threat of floodsBy Sobia Raja • Sep 23rd, 2012 • Category: Politics • 3 Comments
Flood damages are not few to count, they are uncountable. Every year we have to face a lot of destruction caused by these floods but no permanent solution is still devised for this. People without foods, shelter and diseases are looking towards the aid from govt. and people of Pakistan but no one is paying attention towards those miserable affected people.
On Saturday PM Ashraf visited the flood affected areas and while addressing to the people he said that govt. is looking towards some permanent solutions for flood affected areas to protect them from future disasters. This is really apparently seems superb to think about them but in real what they are facing no one else can depict about their feelings and emotions. What they actually feel without home, food and living in dirty water. No one can understand their pain and loss. He said he will do something but the question is, when will this something will happen?? These floods are not new to Pakistan they come and destroy people and their property every year. Destroy the crops and goes away, but we are unable to see any solution up till now. This govt. is going to complete its 5 years but nothing constructive happened. PM announced Rs. 400,000 each for those who lost their lives in this flesh flood. But can this money be the alternative of human lives?? No not at all, permanent solutions are inevitable now. Govt. should think for public they must focus on the worries and miseries of their people.
I remember that in Baluchistan this flood came because of diverting the flood path towards D.G khan, this diversion was just done to save president zardari’s crops from damages and this diversion resulted in damages of thousands of people. But who cares?? If they really do care about the people then they must concentrate on this diversion and built a wall to stop the flow of water in these areas.
