LAHORE - A news item appearing in a section of press on 9th June accused Punjab of stealing Sindh’s water by operating C-J Link and TP Link Canals.

Punjab Irrigation Department spokesman strongly refuted the allegations as these are not factual and are based on mis-information. Punjab is operating C-J Link and TP Link as well as Greater Thal Canal strictly out of its share allocated by IRSA according to the provisions of Water Accord of 1991 and not a drop of Sindh share is utilised in these channels.
