PM Shehbaz sensitizes ambassadors, high commissioners about rain, flood situation

Sources said that last week, the government directed that the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) may invoke the emergency clause under Public Procurement Rules, 2004 and provisions in the NDMA Act, 2010 to make timely procurements for the disaster/calamity-affected areas.

Sources said while duly acknowledging the quantum of the current disaster, Chairman NDMA, provincial Chief Secretaries and National Highways Authority were tasked that the collective national efforts are required by the federal/provincial governments.

The federal departments including FWO, NHA, NDMA and the Provincial Departments including PDMAs, P&D, C&W and District Administrations should take lead immediately and ensure provision of requisite relief without going into jurisdictional issues.
