MURIDKE/SHEIKHUPURA - The flood-affected people of villages Allu Multani, Fatehpur Kuthiala Virkan and Bedadpur Virkan of tehsil Mandi Muridke, district Sheikhupura, are awaiting financial assistance and relief. Several residents of these worst-hit villages, including Hidayat Ali, Haji Muhammad Maalik Dhilon, Iftikhar Ahmed, Muhammad Shahbaz Sindhu and Anwar Dhilon, told The Nation that their areas had been under five to seven feet water for over 15 days.  Their cattle were dying without fodder and their precious household items had been destroyed, they lamented.

They added the people were unable to enter their houses while the floodwater had totally paralysed their life.

They have appealed to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to provide compensation and relief to the residents of these villages.
