Mehmood Khan asserts that the PMLN-led administration is an illegitimate one, and that the KP government would not maintain touch with it.
Mahmood Khan, the chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, stated on Tuesday that there was no collaboration with the national govt for the rebuilding of the flood victims.
The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administration would not maintain any touch with the PMLN-led government, the chief minister declared to reporters while touring the flood-stricken Charsadda district.
Mahmood Khan supported Taimur Saleem Jhagra, his finance minister, and claimed to have sent Miftah Ismail, the federal minister of finance and revenue, a letter outlining the responsibilities of the province. The chief minister stated that Jhagra had only spoken to Miftah Ismail and had not written to the World Bank.
He asserted that further investigation was needed before attributing anything to a supposed audio leak. In answer to a query on the federal government’s involvement in dealing with the flood crisis, the chief minister blamed the federal govt of treating KP province with a stepmotherly attitude, which he claimed was inappropriate.
In addition, KP should receive its fair share, he added, noting that the federal govt has released relief programs for other provinces affected by the floods. The chief minister thought that the national govt had brought up politically motivated charges against PTI Founder Imran Khan that were without merit.
He claimed that the reality that Imran Khan was able to earn an estimated Rs 5 billion in contributions in just a few hours throughout a telethon broadcast on Monday showed that the people have repeatedly shown their faith in him.
The chief minister further said that flood victims around the nation will receive assistance from these money. The chief minister claimed that compared to the floods in 2010, the current floods were more catastrophic.
However, compared to the number of lives lost and the harm done to the infrastructure, the devastation has been far less. In response to a query on incursions on rivers, Mahmood Khan stated that while infrastructure along rivers and canals in Tank, Dera Ismail Khan, and Swat sustained significant damage, the majority of this equipment was constructed before to the PTI government.
Mahmood Khan made a number of trips following the recent floods, including stops at Charsadda and Nowshera. He was joined by representatives from the government, including the Minister Shaukat Yousafzai, Adviser Khaliqur Rehman, and Idris as well as Ibrahim Khattak from the Provincial Legislature.
Our chief minister met with flood victims who are now staying in relief camps to evaluate the relief efforts and damage. The return of refugees, according to Mahmood Khan, is a top priority.
He continued by saying that the KP administration will carry out the repatriation of citizens after the flood waters had subsided. Mahmood Khan instructed the officials to set up the generator facility at the relief camps during his visit to the camps, so the flood victims would have a constant source of electricity.
According to Mahmood Khan, the restoration activities were making use of all available resources. “The provincial cabinet also approved an amount for the provision of additional Rs2.5 billion,” he stated. “Rs. 1 billion has already been donated.”
The chief minister was later informed at a briefing that no lives were lost in the Nowshera region as a result of the prompt notification since the population had been relocated from dangerous locations to safe ones in plenty of time.
He was informed that the flood victims had received food and other essential relief supplies. The evaluation of the harm done to buildings, crops, and other facilities was ongoing and would soon be finished. The chief minister was advised that both male and female physicians, as well as the necessary staff, are available round-the-clock to care for the displaced people in the Amangarh relief center in Nowshera.
