The prime minister vowed that government will not sit with patience until it is done with complete rehabilitation of flood victims.
PM Sharif said next phase of relief compensation amount of Rs. 25,000 to each flood-hit family would be disbursed from October 20. It is our obligation to help people and not something to brag about, he added.
He said CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif came here [Jhang] five times to see victims. He said the speedy disbursement of compensation amount to the affectees by the government was unprecedented.
