BARA, 30 May: Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs) of the Bara tehsil of Khyber Agency have demanded of the authorities concerned to provide Ramazan package along with the ration of June.
Talking to TNN, they said that the weather is getting severe day by day and the Bara IDPs are living far from the food distribution point in Jalozai camp in Nowshera. It would be difficult for us to line up in long queues in the holy month of Ramazan to get our Ramazan package, they said.
“They (authorities concerned) have to distribute Ramazan package. But if distributed along with the package of June, it would save us from standing in long queues while fasting,” they said.
On the other hand, FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) has said that it may consider the demand of the Bara IDPs if it is approached with a written application.
