In this meeting, the National Action Plan (NAP) was also approved to deal with the problem, for which 7.3 billion rupees would be required.

During the meeting in the Prime Minister’s Office, the Prime Minister was given detailed information on the entire situation. It also included Hafiz Sheikh, the Prime Minister’s advisor on economic matters. The meeting was informed that apart from the concerned authorities at the provincial and district levels, various tasks have been assigned to the National Disaster Management Tribunal (NDMA), provincial disaster management officials and federal and provincial departments to deal with the threat.

Prime Minister Khan ordered the formation of a high-level committee under the leadership of Bakhtiar to take a decision at the federal level to eradicate these pests. The Prime Minister has asked the officials concerned to take immediate measures on the basis of damage to the ripe crops.
Bakhtiar informed the House that this is the first time that a group of locusts have entered Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after attacks in Sindh and Punjab. He said, ‘7.3 billion rupees is needed to prevent further wastage’.
