Sagar for release of funds for flood victims

The elections in the state are over, the central government should shift its focus to mitigate the miserable condition of flood victims.

Senior National Conference leader and party General Secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar Wednesday urged the central government to release the funds meant for flood victims of the state.

Sagar, while addressing people at his residence including flood victims from Srinagar city, said that as the elections in the state are over, the central government should shift its focus to mitigate the miserable condition of flood victims.

“State cabinet during Omar’s tenure has already approved rehabilitation plan, but I fail to understand what stops the union government from releasing the amount as asked by the state government. This particular amount could have helped in rehabilitating the flood affected people to a large extent,” Sagar said.
