No area in the province remains unaffected from flooding: Murad Ali Shah

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said that no area in the province remains unaffected from flooding.

Additionally, rains have also submerged cotton and other crops standing over 88,885 acres, while around 60,300 homes have been destroyed.

More than 400,000 people have displaced of which 4,923 have been shifted to 32 relief camps who are being provided with food and medical aid.
