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.

Malik Tariq Ali | 11 years ago | Reply Given the poor credibility and trust deficit, the flood relief funds should be put on the web, alonwith their disbursement. An independent committee be formed minus any crony, which should have men with impeccable record of integrity, so that more funds can be generated.
