Recent rainfall and snowfall in Pak-occupied Balochistan has brought about significant challenges, with casualties rising to nine as a result of incidents in various districts. From February 27 to March 12, the region, including Quetta, witnessed a series of heavy rainfall, leading to widespread destruction.

Reports from the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) say that the impact has been severe. Over 250 houses have been destroyed, leaving many families homeless, while more than a thousand other houses have suffered partial damage.

The consequences of the extreme weather have been dire. Roof collapses and other incidents have claimed the lives of nine individuals across different districts, including Quetta, Khuzdar, Kech, Barkhan, Chaman, and Pishin.

The situation has been intensified by the lack of timely relief efforts. Despite the ongoing crises, assistance from the puppet authorities has been inadequate. The failure of the establishment to provide sufficient infrastructure and support has left affected communities vulnerable and struggling to cope with the aftermath of the natural disasters.

Moreover, the Meteorological Department’s warnings of continued rainfall and snowfall in the coming days highlight the urgent need for effective relief measures. However, the response from the Pak establishment has been lacking, leaving many residents without the essential assistance they desperately need.

Furthermore, the Gwadar flood is at its peak and the Baloch community is facing a high sense of destitution. They have long been marginalized and neglected by the Pak establishment, they often fail to assist in times of crisis. Instead of offering support, their actions have increased the suffering of the Baloch people, continuing a cycle of violence and oppression.
