ISLAMABAD (Online) - Deputy Chairman Senate Jan Muhammad Jamali Monday suggested abolishing Indus River System Authority (Irsa) for the failure to resolve the water distribution dispute between provinces, saying the water-related issues should be resolved through the Council of Common Interest (CCI). Talking to media, he criticised Irsa and said, Irsa has failed to resolve the water dispute, and therefore, it would be better to forward the matter to the CCI. Jamali said Sindh was not giving the water share to Balochistan through the Sukkur Barrage to the Thar Canal. He appealed Prime Minister Gilani to resolve the dispute within 48 hours, saying Chief Minister Balochistan Raisani had taken the premier into confidence over the issue. Jamali rued that fact the prime minister had convened a meeting of Punjab and Sindh over the water dispute but nobody was taking notice of the excesses committed to Balochistan. He went on to say that the Sindh Irrigation Department was not under control of the province. Talking about the fake degrees, he said the credentials of the politicians who participated in the 2002 elections should also be checked, adding that the Election Commission must take account of all deficiencies from 2002. He recalled that Justice Safdar Shah who was against the death sentence to Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had to face the fake degree case and finally he left the country. Expressing his views over the Punjab Assemblys resolution against media, he said neither the politicians nor any other cast was an angel and the political powers should realise the role of media. Describing media as a friend of bad times, he asked politicians not to forget that the position they were enjoying was just because of media.
