LAHORE The bag of Pak-India controversial issues currently on the back-burner is growing bulky with each passing year. The objection to the construction of Kishanganga Project, raised by Pakistan under the terms and conditions of the Indus Water Treaty (IWT) 1960, is a fresh addition to the list of conflicts. According to Iqtidar H. Siddiqui, internationally-recognised water expert and author of 'Hydro Politics and Water Wars in South Asia, 'the proposed Kishanganga hydro-electric project is being constructed on Neelum River in Indian Held Kashmir 75.48 meter high with a reservoir capacity of 0.18 Million Acres Feet (MAF) water and generation of 330-MW power to be completed by the year 2016 after the approval of Indian Cabinet. On the other hand, Pakistans project of diversion of Neelum River would be completed in 2017. Indian violation of IWT will render Pakistans Neelum Jhelum (N-J) project located 70-km downstream unfeasible as India plans to divert water from Kishanganga Project Wuller Lake using 21-km long tunnel. Despite several visits by the Pakistani delegations headed by former Indus Water Commissioner Syed Jamaat Ali Shah to negotiate the issue through peaceful means, Indians are not ready to show any flexibility in their stated position. To ascertain the facts, members of the Court of Arbitration (CoA) from Hague international lawyers hired by Pakistan and India reached Pakistan on June 14 to visit the site of the Neelum-Jhelum project at Nauseri the power house of N-J project and then Kishanganga in Indian-Held Kashmir on June 18. Pakistan has raised objections that the Treaty does not allow diversion of rivers. The visits to site by both Indian and Pakistani delegates ended without any substantial achievement and finally Pakistan referred the case to the Court of Arbitration (CoA). Indian Commissioner responded to Pakistans objections on June 19, 2006 claiming it has revised the Kishanganga storage-cum-hydroelectric project as a 'Run-of-River plant under paragraph 15-A of Annexure, E. CoAs moved into resolve the dispute in the light of IWT after assessing the volume of work so far completed.
