He issued these directives on the occasion of his visit to Dera Ismail Khan while presiding over a meeting held in the office of Commissioner Dera Ismail Khan Division.
He said that infrastructure restoration and damaged houses survey activities launched by the provincial government should not be hindered, adding that surveys should be speeded up to initiate the process of compensation as soon as possible.
