ISLAMABAD (APP) – Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Ahsan Iqbal on Friday asked the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) not to create obstacles in the government’s efforts to seek international support and assistance for flood relief and rehabilitation activities. attacked parts of the country.
Addressing a press conference here, he said that Pakistan was facing the worst destruction and needed help from the world to revive the economy and rebuild after the massive floods.
The minister, who oversees the National Flood Relief and Cooperation Centre, lamented the irresponsible attitude of the opposition parties who ridiculed the government for seeking help from the world.
“Today, Sheikh Rasheed, the government is begging the world, but in fact we are seeking our right, but catastrophic flooding is an international issue as a result of climate change and carbon emissions,” he said. The contribution to international carbon emissions was less than one percent.
He said that Pakistan is ranked 7th among the countries most vulnerable to climate change related issues and the Prime Minister requested the developed countries, which are the major contributors to carbon dioxide emissions, to respect their moral obligation and give justice to Pakistan.
Ahsan Iqbal said the opposition should stop issuing irresponsible statements that “our senior officers and jawans have lost their lives in such operations” while thousands of armed forces personnel are working day and night in flood relief operations.
“Sometimes you use jackals, unpatriotic for worthy leadership… How dare you use such irresponsible words,” he pointed at Imran Khan. I think this kind of attitude is not good for the country and politics.
Whenever a community or a family falls on hard times people forget all their differences and show sympathy, but the person who claims “Hakeegi Azadi” has become so cruel that he creates disruptions in flood relief operations. .
Rather than attacking the central capital, Islamabad, he advised the government to visit the flood-affected areas and help the government in rescue and relief operations.
The damage during the PTI’s tenure from 2018 to 2022 is far greater than the recent flood disaster, as what he called the “Imrani transition” has cost the national economy $50 billion, while floods have caused a loss of $30 billion.
