KARACHI The Sindh Government on Wednesday termed the passage of a resolution by the Punjab Assembly in favour of proposed Kalabagh Dam as an illogical and a bid to harm national integrity and Federation besides creating unrest among the people of three small provinces. Talking to media at her office, Advisor to Sindh Chief Minister Sharmila Faruqui said favouring proposed Kalabagh Dam, rejected by Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, is amid at getting ulterior motives and nefarious designs, which will cause colossal loss to three small provinces, while the PPP Government could not tolerate any loss to them as they are the integral part of the nation, they country and the Federation. The Advisor said that Sindh in the past had been assured that Punjab would get water from Tarbela Dam only after requirements of Sindh are met but this has not been complied with. The Advisor said that Sindh had suffered billions of rupees losses due to acute shortage of water. The Dam conceived in 1953 has been facing strong opposition for the last three decades. It will submerge about 300,000 acres of precious agricultural land in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa besides depriving Sindh of due water share. The people of Sindh will not tolerate more-injustice in shape of Kalabag Dam as it is already under severe water scarcity. However small dams should be established and they should be filled during floods and rise in Indus River water, while a big share of water from them should also be given to Sindh. The proposed Kalabagh Dam has triggered a bitter controversy among the three provinces including, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtu-nkhwa and Balochistan, Punjab has been the only province favouring the Dam, which is not justified on any cost, she said. She said that according to world water law, the tail-enders have a legal and natural right on Indus River which live in Sindh, while the PPP government would never tolerate that Khyber Pakhtunkhwas Nowshera district may submerge due to construction of Kalabagh Dam. Sharmila said Pakistan is fast heading towards a water shortage as per capita surface water availability was 5260 cubic meters in 1951, when population was 34 million, which has been reduced to 1038 cubic meters in 2010 when the estimate population is 172 million, so it will be good to establish small dams.
