Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif urged the nation and directed his party leaders to come forward and help the flood affectees.

“I will also request all PML-N MNAs and MPAs to cancel their political and other engagements and put all your energies into helping the flood victims,” said Sharif on Sunday (August 28).

He highlighted that thousands of people have died and millions are left homeless and repeatedly urged the people to help the victims generously.


Nawaz has also appealed to set up relief camps for flood affectees and has asked to provide them with tents to ensure shelter.

Nawaz praised his brother Shehbaz Sharif’s efforts as prime minister who “has completely focused on providing relief to the victims and has cancelled all of his engagements”.

“Together PM Shehbaz and Maryam will hold the hands of all affectees,” he added.

The government warned on Sunday that the number of people affected by the devastating floods may cross 33 million.

The death toll due to floods across Pakistan has reached 1,061.


Maryam Nawaz visited Taunsa today (Monday) to meet the flood victims.
