Addressing the flood victims at Dera Ismail Khan, Imran Khan said that it is a big responsibility to spend the donations transparently collected from the public. He said that PTI had decided to give money to the victims only for building houses.
“We have established a comprehensive verification system to distribute money to the flood victims. Under this system, the victims will give a check to the bank, and they will get the money because it is against my religion to humiliate the victims and give them money,” he said.
