The Indo-US nexus has not turned the whole of Sindh and half of Punjab against Kalabagh dam. It is the unscrupulous political leaders who have played politics with a project of national importance who have sown the seeds of distrust in the minds of the people. To quote your editorial, ‘The tragedy is that Pakistan has fallen prey to a mindset of conspiracy and provincial disputes and doubts that have been sown in the minds of people of the smaller provinces that the dam would be of benefit only to Punjab and, besides, it would deprive them of their due share of water’. That Sindh would become a desert if Kalabagh dam is built. It will serve no purpose to keep blaming others for what actually is a domestic tragedy.
