Lakki Marwat: Trader leader Jawad Iqbal claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan had visited earthquake-affected families as the PTI leader and pledged support for their rehabilitation, but that after becoming the government, he did nothing to help them. Noor Hussain, a former tehsil nazim, stated that the earthquake survivors will not give up their quest for rights.
The demonstrators bemoaned the federal and provincial administrations’ “apathy” in the face of their long-term misery. Some marched barefoot on the route, while others wore shrouds over their heads. They chanted slogans against Erra and the federal and provincial governments while holding banners and posters.
