ISLAMABAD, Aug 2 (APP): The Federal Flood Commission Chairman during a meeting here on Tuesday highlighted the arrangements for protection against floodwaters and the government’s steps to protect people and their property.

The meeting was chaired by Chairman Prime Minister’s
Inspection Commission and the officials discussed water resources of Pakistan and waste of floodwater.
