ISLAMABAD The Federal Flood Commission (FFC) could not be blamed for any negligence with regard to the present floods, as it had informed all the provinces about the forthcoming disaster one month in advance. The Chairman Flood Commission in a briefing on Monday said that Pakistan Meteorological Department had given a report on July 23 about the monsoon in the country. He said that prior to the said report three meetings had been held at different places to cope with the situation. These meetings were held on Jun 28 in GHQ, July 3rd in National Disaster Management Authority and on July 8 in the Ministry of Water and Power. FFC gave the presentations to the departments concerned as well. Though the impact of floods was huge than anybodys expectations, everybody knew that the flood was coming, as all the Provinces were informed about the situation. Generally, this type of rains occur in India and she releases water to transfer the impact but this year unexpectedly, the rains directly hit Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, therefore, the volume of flood increased enormously. It was also discussed that if there were more dams in the country, the impact of disaster could have been reduced. He also clarified that FFC was an organisation coordinating among all the concerned departments. Whatever funds are allocated to FFC, it does not spend them by its own, as all the funds are transferred to the Provinces, the Chairman said. Out of total allocation, 45 percent goes to Punjab, 31 percent to Sindh, 12 percent to KP and 11 percent goes to Balochistan and then Provincial Governments spend that money, he said. He also said that Punjab Government was talking about the probe and FFC would welcome it and whatever the help would be needed, it would provide, as FFC had nothing to do with it. The Provincial Government would have to look into its own irrigation system to find out any negligence, if committed.
