FLOOD DAMAGES|Nowshera residents protest over delay in compensation
The residents of Nowshera today staged a protest demonstration against the 'apathetic' approach of the district administration in disbursing compensation to the flood affected families in the area.
As per reports, people from several villages raised anti-government slogans and alleged that poor people in the area are suffering, while files of compensation to flood victims are still lying unsanctioned on shelves.
They also alleged that the district administration had preferred to sanction financial compensation to influential people, as their files get signed in one go, while as the poor people remain craving for assistance.
Later SDM Nowshera met with the protesting people and assured them that their matter will be taken on priority.
