LAHORE - Contrary to his claims of making history, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken notice of the protest by some flood affectees over non-payment of financial assistance in Chiniot, seeking a report from the authorities concerned.

The chief minister on Friday directed Cabinet Committee on Flood to investigate the whole matter and fix responsibility for taking stern action.

He said that the affected people would be given their due right and no deserving person would remain deprived.

‘Go Nawaz Go’ :As soon as Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif concluded his address to the flood victims here at Bhawana High School, thousands of flood affectees including women and children gathered outside the school and chanted “Go Nawaz Go.” Victims surrounded and tried to stop the Punjab CM motorcade to let him hear to their plight but the administration paved his way out.

According to the victims, people sitting inside for the collection of aid are all patwaris’ favourites while the genuine victims have been kept from entering the premises.

The administration has asked the victims to get themselves registered at the commissioner office first whereas the flood affectees pronounced that they have registered themselves manifold, displaying their registration forms, but haven’t received the aid first.

Asif Saeed from Lahore, Commissioner Faisalabad and DPO Chiniot were also present at the occasion. Asif Saeed assured that notice of the issue has been taken and the administration has formulated a committee in this regard. The victims are still agitated and seem to be in no mood to settle.
