Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s chairman, Imran Khan, has said that the rain-affected people in Sindh were living in miserable conditions because of the torrential rains.
He said these people are waiting for shelter, food and assistance. He stated this while visiting relief camps in Sindh that were set up by the Imran Khan Foundation on Saturday. Khan criticised the president for being on a personal foreign visit at a time when the people of Sindh needed his help. He said the government should have constituted an inquiry committee to look into the allegations made by former home minister Zulfiqar Mirza. He said 40,000 people had so far been provided assistance in rain-hit areas while others are still being helped by the PTI.
