SIALKOT - The dozens of the tornado-hit villagers staged demonstration and a peaceful sit-in as a protest against the alleged government apathy in the affected villages near Head Marala-Sialkot, saying that the both provincial and federal governments had forgot them after paying the financial compensation to the families whose persons died or injured by the high intensity twister. They were carrying the banners and placards and they chanted anti-government slogans. They said that the both federal and provincial governments had announced Rs 50000 for the repairing of every damaged house.
