Karachi October 9:   Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh for Information, Law and Anti-Corruption Barrister Murtaza Wahab has said despite the notices taken on Thar situation by President and Prime Minister of Pakistan, yet no step has been taken by federal government for the relief of drought affected people. He said that Sindh Government was taking relief measures on its own. This he said while addressing a crowded press conference at his office on Tuesday.

                He said that on the instruction of the Chief Minister Sindh, he along with Provincial Minister for Energy Imtiaz Ahmed Shaikh visited Tharparkar to ascertain and ensure smooth relief measures for drought hit people. “They went around RO plants, wheat distribution centers, godowns, health center, Mithi hospital and met people to be familiar with the ground realities,” he said. He rejected the reports regarding distribution of substandard wheat and added that they checked quality of wheat being distributed and weight of bags during their visit to Thar which was found satisfactory.
