Mohammad Aziz, who returned from Pakistaninfo-icon, said “I repatriated to my hometown two and a half years back and my economic situation has since been bad and my problems multiplied.”

He said the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation had assured them of support but so far his family had received nothing in aid.

Another repatriated man Mualvi Serajuddin said: “I returned to my country in 2016 when the Ministry of Refugees promised one plot each to us but I did not receive that plot so far.”

He said he has documents of the plot signed by the minister of refugees but he could not get the plot.
