New Delhi: According to reports, the government is in talks about sending relief to Pakistan, where severe floods have killed more than 1,000 people and injured almost three crore people. Sources claimed that discussions are taking place at the highest levels of the government, but no decision has been made as of yet.

Furthermore, Pakistan has not formally requested assistance from India, despite one of its ministers allegedly saying that Islamabad may consider purchasing food supplies from India. The debate about aid for Pakistan is taking place as Prime Minister Narendra Modi sends his sympathies to the families of those who perished in the disaster.

PM tweeted yesterday, “Saddened to see the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, the injured, and all those affected by this natural calamity and hope for an early restoration of normalcy,”.

In Pakistan, inflation has gotten worse as a result of the floods. Further, costs for necessities like vegetables have skyrocketed.

The government may “consider importing veggies and other food products from India,” according to reports in Pakistani media. Floods have harmed agriculture throughout the nation.

Further, he added, “We need to consider getting some vegetables over the land border. We have to do it because of the kind of prices and shortages we are experiencing. Inflation has broken people’s backs.”

India in past

India had previously offered Pakistan support during the 2010 floods and the 2005 earthquake. If approved, India will provide Pakistan relief in response to a natural disaster. This will be the first time since the BJP administration took office in 2014.

The most recent statistics indicate that more than 1,100 people have died due to the floods in Pakistan. One-seventh of the country’s population, or 33 million people, are claimed to have been displaced by the crisis. These reports are according to the cash-strapped administration of Shehbaz Sharif.
