LAHORE

Jamatud Dawa Ameer Hafiz Saeed has appealed to the politicians to shun their personal differences and make all out efforts for providing relief to the flood affectees.

He made this appeal while addressing a press conference on Monday at the flood relief camp set up by Falah Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) at the affected areas of Rana Town.

Criticising the offer by Indian premier to provide relief goods to flood affectees in Pakistan, Hafiz Saeed termed it a mere joke and said that Modi should clarify that India was responsible for the floods in Pakistan.  Pointing out flood devastation in the areas of Held Kashmir, Hafiz Saeed said Modi government was unable to provide any relief to Kashmiris and help for Azad Kashmir was a political gimmick.  He warned that India was pursuing a conspiracy of leaving Pakistan economically handicapped by building dams over the rivers flowing into Pakistan from occupied Kashmir. He added that Islamabad would not be safe from floods if New Delhi completes building dam in Laddakh.

Earlier, he visited the flood-hit areas of the vicinity and joined the FIF and Dawa workers in providing relief items and food to the flood affectees.

Meanwhile, Jamaat e Islami Secretary General Liaqat Baloch visited the flood-hit areas of Lahore on Monday.

Talking to the media during his visit, he claimed that the government plans to prevent floods had failed and the people were facing destruction due to the incompetence and corruption of the irrigation and flood protection departments and other related authorities.

He claimed that there was complete lack of coordination among the government departments.
