According to details, the Punjab chief minister has directed Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) and district administrations to expedite relief operation in flood-affected areas of the province.

CM Punjab also directed to shift the victims to safer places besides establishment of relief camps in the affected areas. “All necessary facilities should be ensured to flood-affected families,” he added.
