India responsible for Pakistan floods: Hafeez Saeed

India responsible for Pakistan floods: Hafeez Saeed - Hindustan Times

“On one hand, Indian government has discharged water in rivers without notification and has given false information, and on the other, is ironically offering help,” he said, adding “we consider this an act of open mischief.”

 

Saeed described Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s offer to help flood victims as equivalent to rubbing salt on the wounds of the Pakistani and Kashmiri people.

 

The Falah e Insaniyat Foundation, JuD’s relief wing, had launched a motorboat service in flood-affected areas and was leading the rescue and relief efforts.

The NDMA also reported that there was heavy damage to infrastructure in both Kashmir and in Gilgit-Baltistan where roads, bridges and buildings had been swept away by raging waters.

 

The flooding in Punjab had claimed more lives and had also led to thousands of people being stranded in different parts of the province.

 

Both the Chenab and Jhelum rivers were seen to be in high-flood with the result that hundreds of villages and towns had been cut off from the rest of the country.

 

Officials said that Jhang and Sialkot had been marooned while there was serious threat to Wazirabad and Gujranwala.
