ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Tuesday observed that the flood situation in Sindh is very serious, as the destruction shown on TV channels is insufficient and directed the federal and provincial governments to provide relief goods to affectees on urgent basis. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heading a three-member bench comprising Justice Tariq Pervaiz and Justice Ghulam Rabbani, heard former MNA and former PML-Q leader Marvi Memons petition. The Chief Justice directed the Assistant Advocate General Sindh to file a comprehensive reply about the damages in this years floods and what relief measures the government has taken. The CJP also asked the advocate general to provide the relief to flood victims immediately. Marvi Memon had submitted a written statement before the court and said if the federal and the provincial authorities had implemented the Flood Commissions recommendations then great damages in Sindh could have been averted. The former parliamentarian informed that the seriousness of relief efforts could be judge from this fact that in Sanghar as a relief the government distributed Rs11 per person among the victims. She said if the federal and the provincial governments had implemented the reports of Flood Commission, Nisar Memon Parliamentary Committee, A.N.G. Abbasi environmental parliamentary committee, Civil Society response on the funds provided by Asian Development Bank, Climate Commission and Wapda (Nespak conducted the study) reports the destruction in Sindh could have been averted. The Chief Justice remarked that the floods are due to the excessive rains. Marvi agreeing with the CJPs observation, said that though the rains are God blessing and this year we had excess rains, but the devastation in Sindh has been caused, as the government did not take preventive measures before time. The executive, both federal and provincial, keeps on ignoring the Flood Commissions recommendations. She said that the Flood Commission should be revived and be directed to investigate the destruction in the recent floods. They should also probe the relief distribution. She said that last year also the flood destroyed thousands of acres lands and many people suffered and the same thing happening again this year. Earlier, the Assistant Advocate General Sindh prayed to the bench to give him some time in order to file a report about the destruction in Sindh. The court on his request adjourned the case till tomorrow.
