This is with reference your excellent editorial on the above subject, it is important to set the record straight that KBD will not be disastrous to the interests of the smaller provinces. The questions that arise are: How will KBD reduce the flow in the Indus when it will store only the surplus flood waters from June to August. How can Sindh be affected adversely when Punjab has agreed to reduce its own share in order to increase Sindhs share in all future dams under the Water Apportionment Accord of 1991. Equal share for both despite the vast difference in population and in the area under cultivation. How can KBD benefitonly Punjab when river water distribution is under the federal body IRSA which has a higher representation from Sindh? Did not IRSA shut down the Chashma-Jhelum link canal despite protests from south Punjab. And what about the monitoring team of engineers from the Sindh irrigation department posted permanently on major head works of Punjab. However, we must adopt a knowledge based approach to remove the apprehensions of the opponents of the dam instead of accusing them of playing into Indias hands without solid proof. We have to be careful not to antagonise those who may have genuine fears about the dam through lack of proper information. ENGR KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, December 3.
