QUETTA    -   Balochistan government spokesperson Farah Azeem Shah on Wednesday said that living nations face natural ca­lamities with patience, adopt the best strategy and effec­tive planning to diminish the losses.

She expressed these views during her visit to the Provin­cial Disaster Management Au­thority (PDMA) office Quetta where Director General (DG) PDMA Naseer Khan Nasir gave her detailed briefing about the ongoing relief operation in the flood-hit areas of the province. The spokesperson lauding the civil and military collective ef­forts in calamity-ravaged dis­tricts said: “Pakistan Army, PDMA, FC and civil adminis­tration have been impressive.

“In this context PDMA and other institutions have to play a key role so that the affected families can get back to their routine life,” she stressed.
