Republic TV’s Jammu Bureau Chief Tejinder visited a migrant camp where residents of at least thirteen villages along with border have taken temporary shelter in camps, as an outcome of non-stop ceasefire violations by Pakistan. In this ground report from Nowshera, Republic spoke to residents who were forced to move to Special camps due to indiscriminate firing from Pakistan.
While speaking to Republic TV, one refugee highlighted the plight surrounding their day to day living and further spoke about how their medical health is detaining. She said,
“we have been here for 9 months. They only give us flour and rice. We have not been gas and oil. Things are getting tough. Everyone falls sick. No one is able to earn. Our husbands are far away, we are here with children.”
Furthermore, on speaking about the facilities being provided by the government, the sarpanch of Nowshera said,
“government is supposed to supply 2 kilo rice and flour. But we are facing injustice here as well. 2 kilogram is deduced and just 9 kilogram was supplied.”
He further highlighted that the ration and facilities being provided by the government was not sufficient.
