NGOs have demanded action against the looters after they stopped further operations, demanding security from the law enforcement agencies.

Media reports have also claimed that in Dera Bugti, Kohlu and some other areas as well, people had gathered in protest due to non-provision of relief goods.

The protestors had alleged the government of dumping relief goods in its godowns after which the goods were being distributed on basis of political affiliation.

Government officials have called it propaganda, denying the allegations. Officials have said that the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) along with NGOs was distributing the relief goods on equity basis. They also said that drinking water, cooked food and tents were included in the relief goods provided to people.
