The Minister for water and power has revealed the inclination of the government towards starting, once again, the project of Kalabagh dam. Kalabagh is extremely important to address the future energy needs of Pakistan. There is an extensive residential facility which has been constructed, now in shambles, along the dam site along with a huge number of necessary equipment. As a citizen of Pakistan I fail to understand why Pakistan People’s Party, ANP and MQM have unanimously started criticizing this, yet to be implemented but extremely important, move. Wouldn’t it be right to think that these parties are acting against the interest of Pakistan?
