Let’s put politics aside for now.

The opposition is free to stage public rallies during these trying times, according to Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto, but the administration is mainly concerned with coping with the floods. According to a private TV programme, he stated, “I have postponed my Europe trip since my focus at this time is to support the flood affectedees.”

Regardless of whether money comes from the provincial or federal government, he added, their first concern right now should only be helping flood victims since politics could be dealt with later. He also criticised Imran Khan, the former prime minister, for staging public rallies across the nation during unheard-of disasters.

He claimed, in an interview , that the country’s monsoon rains had caused serious damage in Balochistan, South Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Gilgit Baltistan, but Sindh province has been the hardest impacted, with each district being designated disaster-stricken.

Speaking about the extent of the flooding destruction, he said that just 80,000 families from Larkana, his birthplace, have left since being uprooted. The people are now moving toward dry land, according to Bilawal, who promised to offer tents and refuge for them in schools, universities, or any government building after days of nonstop rain. No government in the entire world, according to him, could handle such a catastrophe on its own.

But he went on to say that when a government faces a situation like that, everyone tries to do what they can to assist.FM Bilawal criticised Imran Khan for showing little interest in assisting Sindh, whether he was in office or not.\

He recalled that Imran Khan was the prime minister in 2020 when the people of Sindh were plagued by floods, and he did not offer assistance to them.”Even when his own province, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where the PTI is in power, was experiencing flooding, he [Imran Khan] is playing jalsa jalsa

I find this to be absolutely reprehensible,” FM Bilawal stated. When such a natural disaster struck, so many people and areas were affected, and politics was over, according to Bilawal, he had never witnessed such apathy in the world. “The entire country attempts to support the affected people together when there is an earthquake or flood,” he continued.
