WB, Int’l community should take notice of India’s water aggression: minister
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Muhammad Farogh Naseem has called upon the Word Bank (WB) and the international community to take notice of India’s water aggression against Pakistan.
Addressing an international conference on “Water: Future War and Peace in Subcontinent” organized by the Center for Global Strategic Studies on Monday in Islamabad, Farogh Naseem urged the international community to play its role to stop India from violating Indus Basin Treaty.
He said that India is using the water from rivers Indus, Jhelum and Chenab for Industrial purposes which is the violation of the agreement.
The minister maintained that under the pact, India could only use water to generate electricity from these rivers if it doesn’t disrupt water supply to Pakistan.
Farogh Naseem urged the WB to play a mediatory role to resolve the issue.
