On Friday, Imran Khan called for an immediate escalation of relief efforts for flood victims in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) as he toured the province to monitor the situation and meet families who have been affected.
The former prime minister assessed flood-affected areas of KP including Tank and DI Khan, where he met families affected by the calamity, accompanied by KP Chief Minister Mehmood Khan.
Speaking to the media during his visit to DI Khan, the PTI Chairman said the calamity had surpassed the destruction caused by the 2010 floods in Sindh.
“We used to think of the 2010 floods as an unimaginable catastrophe, but according to reports, the devastation and loss of life caused this time is far greater,” he said.
Khan said the Punjab and KP governments should provide immediate relief to flood victims without discrimination.
The PTI chairman vowed that the PTI would not leave the flood victims alone, ordering the governments of Punjab and KP to provide immediate assistance to the victims.
“I will not leave the people alone in this time of distress,” he added.
