A writer in his excellent letter on the issue of Kalabagh dam has mentioned the desirability of the project having been executed according to initial plans. Even if the initial deadline had been missed, there was an excellent opportunity to build the dam after the Water Apportionment Accord of 1991 had addressed the apprehensions of all the stakeholders. River water distribution was entrusted to the federal body IRSA and Sindhs share was increased by decreasing Punjabs share. Also engineers from the Sindh irrigation department were deputed at major head works of Punjab, and the right bank canal was incorporated to irrigate 8 lakh acres in D I Khan. Without the right and the left bank canals at Kalabagh dam, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and north Punjab will never get any water from any dam on the Indus, be it Tarbela, Bhasha, Skardu, Katzara or any other dam. Kalabagh dam is a win-win position for all. What is needed is a serious campaign in the print and electronic media to educate public opinion, both on the advantages and on the very serious results of not building Kalabagh dam.
