LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N Chief Nawaz Sharif Friday demanded of the Federal Government to give at least Rs100,000 each to the families affected by the devastating floods across the country.

Talking to reporters after meeting of PML-N here, Nawaz Sharif said the entire world would have rushed to offer help, had the Prime Minister accepted the former’s proposal of dealing together with the challenges of the flood.

Nawaz Sharif also called for setting up a judicial commission to probe into the breaking of embankments and dykes.

He said: “The ministers of Altaf Hussain keep on issuing statements against inflation while at the same time they continue to be part of the cabinet.” Who are they trying to fool, he asked.

Nawaz Sharif went on to say that ‘in case there is Martial Law, they will be ministers in that set up too.’

He said failure of the government should not be interpreted as a failure of democracy and warned against inviting Martial Law.

On the occasion, Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif said he has written a letter to the Prime Minister, asking him to convene a meeting of Council of Common Interests with a view to taking the provinces in confidence over distribution of the international aid.

He announced that Rs20,000 each will be given to the flood-hit families before Eid-ul-Fitr and asked the Federal Government to contribute its share in it.

Nawaz Sharif asserted: “Those terming our sincere efforts and visits to flood-affected areas as meant for a photo shoot, should also come forward to take part in this virtuous deed.
