Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan, urging the federal government to take immediate measures against the locust attack.
“Threat of food security in the province is increasing due to locusts’ attacks,” said Murad in the letter.
Demanding emergency measures from the prime minister, the chief minister said that if immediate measures were not taken to cope up with the situation then it could devastate harvest in the province.
He demanded of the premier to immediately provide six planes to conduct aerial spray on swarms of locusts other than providing 110 double-cabin vehicles for the same. The federal government should also provide 100,000 litres of pesticides and 12 tractors for the purpose. “The government should fulfill its promise to deal with the attack,” he said.
