May 25, 2017

MIRANSHAH, 25 May: Residents of the North Waziristan Agency (SWA) had demanded of the federal government to complete the survey to ascertain the damaged houses and immediately compensate them to reconstruct their houses.
The North Waziristan repatriated residents said that the damaged houses survey process is underway very slowly. They complained that majority of the repatriated families are compelled to live in tents as their houses were destroyed during the military offensive against militants. The affected families feared that the government might not compensate them if they started reconstruction of their damaged houses. They demanded of the government not to delay the survey and immediately compensate the affected families to rebuild their damaged houses. “When the damaged houses survey team visit the area they told us that only boundary walls are collapsed there,” they complained. They further complained that the compensation cheques were also late for six months. “We tender sacrifices and leave our homes due to the military operation, however, the government did not take interest to resolve our miseries,” the affected people maintained.
