Bilawal urges centre to issue ‘Watan Cards’ to flood affectees

MIRPUR KHAS: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday demanded of the federal government to issue ‘Watan Cards’ to flood affectees.

Earlier on September 12, President Dr. Arif Alvi and Sindh Governor Imran Ismail had distributed relief goods among the affectees of flood-hit areas in Mirpur Khas.

President Dr. Arif Alvi, while addressing on the occasion, had said that the role of welfare organizations was praiseworthy for assisting the people of Badin, Sanghar, Sukkur and other rural parts.

He had said that Pakistan had set an example around the world for fighting coronavirus. He had added that the losses faced by Pakistan are less as compared with the states still dealing with the pandemic.

The president had said that the federal government adopted the policy of smart lockdown instead of country-wide shutdown.
