Agree to United Nations Aid for #KashmirFlood Victims.
This petition had 1,556 supporters
1 million people have been displaced in Kashmir following severe floods. The army have attempted emergency rescue. The United Nations have offered to help victims. [ see link here]
Sadly, the Indian government have so far refused support from the UN or shall we say remained silent . They certainly have not accepted the UN offer yet. Their reasons are unknown. [See link]
Victims are requesting United Nations assistance immediately as basic supplies, expertise and co-ordination is absent. Before the mortality rate increases following post flood complications, the Indian government needs to agree to United Nations Aid.
