Marvi Memon’s “letter to PM” regarding Attabad disaster
- Ayeenabad and the surrounding villages need to be evacuated since the water level rising will impact them within few days. Alternatively their populations need to be given some directions/assistance. They require daily commodities like fuel and food which they are cut off from. For this the China route needs to be opened immediately. Government needs to accelerate this opening immediately to relieve the masses. Heli lifts will not be sufficient.
- The affected victims of Attabad Salamanabad and Shishkot need to be given just compensation, alternative accommodation beyond being put up at temporary school lodging. They are not satisfied with the money being disbursed, the speed of it being disbursed and the assistance being given to the injured.
- Business community of Sust has suffered massive setback and are stranded. They need to be assisted financially and routes need to be opened immediately. Heli lifts will not be sufficient.
- The river whether through breach or blast needs to be opened fast so that populations of Sumayar, Ashkondas, Jutal, Faizabad and Nilat are not adversely affected.
