NATIONAL – Engr. Mumtaz Ahmed Khan, Chairman of Kalabagh dam movement said Pakistan is leading towards severe water shortfall as Indian government has decided to construct seven dams on rivers running into Pakistan for held Kashmir.

He said that Pakistan has the right to contradict Indian dam projects as well fighting Kishanganga project because its diversion will dilute more than 20 percent of the power production capacity of the 975 megawatts (MW) Neelum-Jhelum power project on the same river downstream Muzaffarabad in Azad Kashmir. Ha also said that Pakistan has sheer rights on these rivers, as it falls in Pakistan and under the Indus Water Treaty India is breaching the agreement. He said the government should raise voice on an international platform so that Indian government cannot breach the contract by building dams on the river flowing into Pakistan. He further said that the country is moving forward blindly and will have to face severe water deficit in the near future because of poor water management and storage capacity.
