PM offers assistance to Pak for relief ops in flood-hit PoK

In a humanitarian gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today offered all possible assistance to Pakistan for carrying out relief operations in the flood- ravaged Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Making the offer after undertaking a visit to flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir for a first-hand assessment of the situation, Modi expressed his anguish at the loss that has been caused in PoK.

"In this hour of distress, the Prime Minister offered all possible assistance to the people of the region and said that the Government of India was ready to provide humanitarian assistance to those areas if the Pakistan government needs it," a PMO statement said.

Modi said like in Jammu and Kashmir, the people in PoK region too were bearing losses due to the floods. This is a humanitarian work and India will never be behind in doing such work, he said.
