Government of Pakistan has introduced new registration system for flood victims. But riots and chaos have been happened in Nadra offices during the distribution of watan cards, it is getting controversial for the government. The reason of these riots is that the flood victims have complaint that their names were not figure among those who will receive these cards. There was a corruption may be in this scheme but this is a suspicion but not a reality.
Establishment of Scheme:
This scheme was established to compensate flood affected people for damages suffered as a result of the disaster that hit the country in the month of July. But poor people, who lost their homes and properties in this flood, claim their names do not appear on the lists of those who are eligible for the card. The flood victims will receive 20,000 RS, from the bank, so can they used this card to fulfill their daily and basic requirements. These flood victims will get cash in the form of ATM Card. But the sums which are receiving by the flood victims are not enough for them it is a worthless sum for them, because when some 20 million people are returning to destroyed homes as they go back to their villages. Most people have now gone home, but many of them face miserable circumstances there.
Nadra Distribution Card:
Nadra has attempted to make more efficient the scheme and system, but people seek more than efficiency and honesty also. These kind of worst situations have been seen in the province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The government is ignoring the flood affected people in this province, it is clear evidence that this province Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa was highly hit and affected by the severe flood. Can there be any further manifestation of lack of ability? How can our leaders be so unconcerned and indifferent to their own people? This sort of issue is not merely a humanitarian one but it has very distinctive political contours.
Since 2008, when the government was elected, we have been hearing accusations of corruption. Government has been ignoring the actual and basic issues of the country, which are facing by the people of Pakistan, especially common man. The members of the parliament are accusing each other regarding corruption, it is an evil and curse and the volume of corruption is keep growing. People of Pakistan who have been forced to face remarkable inflation. Even the poorest man has not been safe, with the cost of kerosene-used by so many to light cooking stoves. If the situation still continues now such a time will come that this anger of the people will be changed in great revolution. The government of Pakistan must take serious action in this regard and must take such measure so that the watan card system and scheme must be clean and clear and the card must receive those people who are entitled for this Scheme.
