Construction of Baglihar dam: KBP asks government to take notice of Indian’s move
July 13, 2013
Kisan Board Pakistan (KBP) President Sardar Zafar Hussein Khan has warned the present government, showing its keenness for cordial relations with India, to take serious notice of Indian decision of construction of Baglihar dam, which may turn Pakistan in to a barren land.
In a statement issued here on Friday, Sardar Zafar Hussein strongly reacted to Indian decision of constructing Baglihar Dam. He alleged that India had already constructed numerous dams on Chenab, Jhelum and Sindh rivers due to ineptness of our rulers and Indus water commission officers. India had already deprived us 90 per cent water of these three rivers and now its fresh decision of constructing Baglihar Dam and connecting all the newly constructed dams and rivers would complete deprive Pakistan from river water, he added.
KBP Chief terming this as a water aggression against Pakistan said that our industrial and agricultural sectors were facing a big disaster like situation because of this construction by India. He said India on one hand depriving Pakistan from its share of river water while on the other hand our rulers were playing the role of silent spectator.
He said talking about free trade with India was equal to approving this water aggression and betrayal with the bloods of Kashmiri martyrs. He said that the rulers should immediately start construction of new dams in Pakistan besides highlighting Indian water aggression at international level. The Board also urged the Supreme Court of Pakistan to direct the rulers for construction of new dams on the pattern of Indian Supreme Court to save country from becoming barren and creating any food security situation.
