People protest against KP government’s poor response to natural calamities in Kohistan
April 10, 2016

DASU, 10 April: Hundreds of people affected by the recent rains and floods in Kohistan district protested against the provincial government’s poor response in the wake of devastating natural calamities.

The affected people held a protest rally in Pallas area condemning the government for not taking prompt action to cope with the tragedy of Uthror village. The protesters remarked that as many as 30 human beings were trapped under a massive land sliding but the government did not move heavy machinery to the site to retrieve the people alive even after passing a week.

They said the local people tried their best but it was beyond their capability to rescue the buried people and ultimately all the 23 trapped people were declared dead.

They further said that hundreds of houses have been damaged in the district due to flash floods and rains and thousands of people have been left homeless but the government did not take any measures to provide them temporary shelter.

The enraged protesters also condemned the non government relief organizations for not turning up for their help.

They strongly criticized the Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and said he visited the district only for a photo shoot. They said though the chief minister visited Kohistan but he returned without meeting with the affected people.
