BARA, November 10: The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), which rules the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, has distributed “winter package” among the tribal families displaced from Khyber Agency as a result of a military operation.

PTI president for Khyber Agency Mr Iqbal Afridi says the winter package, which was arranged through the party’s funds, included warms clothes and sweaters.

He added that they have also distributed 2,000 rupees each to 400 families and 500 rupees each to another 400 displaced families.

The displaced families have lauded the aid and said that hopefully such assistance would continue in future as well.

“We need the assistance nowadays. There are people who cannot even afford to buy and wear shoes. We have even left behind our cattle and other goods while leaving homes during the military operation. We demanded the same relief package for Khyber Agency affectees, which has been given to North Waziristan families,” said an elder after receiving the package.
