Briefing the journalists at the Chief Ministers House here on Friday, the Minister said the United Nations had admitted that the losses were more than the loss of tsunami in 2004. He said that each family would be provided emergency relief of Rs25,000 and those whom houses had been fully damaged would be provided Rs400,000 while those, whom houses were partially damaged would be granted Rs160,000.

He said that 890,245 people were rendered homeless due to the devastating flood while houses of 100,214 persons were damaged besides the huge infrastructure including roads, hospitals and schools had been damaged. Enumerating the figures, he said 278 major bridges, 283 roads and 8,325 cattle while the flood damaged standing crops of 60,000 acres land. He maintained that 17,000 tents in government buildings had been installed for the flood affectees, which had accommodated 72,000 people. He said that the district administration of Dir and Kohistan had initiated work on the damaged roads and bridges and it would soon be completed. He said the relief items provided by the provincial government had also been distributed among the affected people of the area. He informed that Pakistan army has established a camp in Sherengal where emergency medical treatment was being provided to the flood victims. He said that the total estimate of the destruction caused by flood was being reported Rs 200 billion. He said that the world had realised that flood had caused major destruction in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He thanked the international community including United States, Saudi Arabia, Britain, Australia and Nigeria for dispatching their financial aid for the flood-affected people. He appealed to the federal government to grant 95 percent international aid to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as the area badly suffered due to recent torrential rains and floods. Meanwhile, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain in his meeting with the Country Director, Norwegian Council for Refugees Simon Worrell, Friday, said the recent rains and floods are the worst devastation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwas history and the enormous loss cannot be compensated without the assistance and cooperation of the world community as well as the federal government. Mediha Almas, Head of International Programme Department (Asia Section) was also present on the occasion. The Country Director of the council informed the Provincial Minister that he had been busy in relief activities for the last one week in the hard hit flood affected areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and was in constant contact with his government for increasing the funds for flood affectees. He said the council had a relief programme of Rs180,000 persons adding We have contacted other countries as well in this regard. The Information Minister thanked the Norwegian Government for assistance to the flood affectees and said other countries should also come forward to see the devastation of flood themselves. Mian Iftikhar Hussain said every part of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had been affected by the recent rains and floods but Upper Swat, Nowshera, Charsadda, Dera Ismail Khan and Dir had been badly affected and 160 years old infrastructure of the province had been destroyed. He expressed his concerns over ignoring Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the recent devastation by Federal Government and NDMA and urged the world community to keep check on the funds sent for flood affectees and ensure its distribution to the provinces according to the devastation. He said the centre failed to present the case of recent flood devastation that was why the world community did not show positive response as it had shown in the war against terrorism. He warned if the world community ignored the KP in this hour of need, the government would be compelled to transfer the amount earmarked for the war against terrorism to the rehabilitation and assistance of flood affectees that might affect the interests of the world community. He said the provincial government was capable of facing any situation but it was in need of financial assistance to tackle the post flood situation in the province.
