QUETTA: The Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) Balochistan on Friday transported relief goods, comprising food items and tents, to the drought-hit Chagai district.

The home minister said PDMA Balochistan, under its available resources, acted promptly to provide relief to the people living in the drought-hit area.

“We have been monitoring the relief operation in Chagai and other drought-hit regions,” said Khosa.

Deputy Commissioner Chagai on Wednesday had called for immediate relief assistance for Chagai as drought has been rapidly gripping the Pakistan-Iran bordering city, affecting more than 7,000 families.

On the home minister’s directives, a PDMA team, carrying relief goods for 5000 families, left for Chagai.
