Since the torrential rains in Sindh have caused bad damage to the province. People have been displaced, their houses turned into mud, and many people have lost their lives to rain-flood disasters. On Thursday, more people were injured, and fifty-five people were killed by the flood.
It is said that the loss cannot be estimated at the present condition because entire Sindh’s cities and villages are collapsed.
The affected people are seen complaining that the Sindh government has not provided essential needs, nor does the provincial government dewater the cities, which can lead to diseases.
A mother, rain-affected, said that she has been looking for food that she can feed her children. She shifted to Jamshoro to seek shelter. “I lost everything – now, I have my children. How do I feed them?”
The Sindh government is criticized for not to have delivered assistance to the people. Though recently, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto visited rain-affected areas and promised to assist people. Sindh government declared 23 districts calamity-hit.
“Local administration is not on the ground what kind of service provincial government is giving to us,” says rain-affected people in videos.
Sindh and Balochistan are both provinces hit by heavy rains. People are angered at the federal and provincial governments that are nowhere to be seen. It has been a major loss in the decade in the country, and the present government and the opponents are reluctant to speak about people who are suffering in South Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, and Sindh.
Reuters reports: “Sindh in the country’s southeast and Balochistan in the southwest are the two most affected provinces. More than 504,000 livestock have been killed, nearly all of them in Balochistan, while damage to nearly 3,000 km of roads and 129 bridges have impeded movement around flood-affected areas.”
“United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says heavy monsoon rainfall and floods have affected some 2.3 million people in Pakistan since mid-June, destroying at least 95,350 houses and damaging a further 224,100.”
From June to the present in Pakistan, men have been killed 396; women killed 198, according to National Disaster Management Authority.
Many cases go unreported in disasters. The recent rain-flood disasters have hit Sindh and Balochistan, and people are looking for a meal and tent to feed their children and shelter them.
