JTI to distribute one truck relief goods.

PESHAWAR, Aug. 13 -- Jamiat Talba Islam (JTI), student wing of JUI-F collected relief goods included medicines, clothes and crockery of one truck and cash amount of Rs0.1 million through its 10 relief camps set up in different parts of the capital city.

The student wing of the religio-political party will distribute the donations according to a list compiled by the wing.

This was stated by JTI secretary general, Amjad Ali Marwat, press secretary Asifullah Marwat and others while addressing a press conference here at the press club on Thursday.

They said that assistance received by the government so far for the relief of the flood affectees is in insufficient and appealed the people to donate generously for the flood victims.

Marwat said that assistance with the flood affectees is moral as well as Islamic obligation of the Muslims.

They urged all political parties to set aside their political differences at this critical stage and join hands for the provision of assistance to helpless flood affectees.

They said that the affected people lack shelter and demanded of the government to chalk out solid plan for the provision of assistance to the flood affected families at the earliest.

They further said that recent torrential rains and floods have also played havoc in southern districts of the province, but the provincial and federal governments are ignoring the disaster-hit areas consecutively.
