LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that the federal government should share details of the foreign aid it has received for flood victims.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, the chief minister said that Punjab will spend Rs10 billion for the rehabilitation of flood victims. This comes as Law Minister Babar Awan said that the Punjab government should first assess the devastation caused by the floods, before seeking funds from the federal government.
Speaking at the Lahore Press Club, Awan said Punjab had been given Rs480 billion in the budget, while another Rs95 billion were given under the NFC Award. But the Punjab government is still seeking Rs25 billion to cope with the floods.
