ISLAMABAD The row over distribution of water was amicably resolved during a crucial meeting of IRSA chaired by its newly appointed Chairman Engineer Abdul Raqib Khan here on Wednesday. Sources informed that all the provinces agreed on water distribution formula and the demand of Punjab to open Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal was accepted with some conditions. According to sources, it has been decided to open Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal with a condition to ensure water availability in Chashma downstream, 285,000 cusecs, Guddu downstream, 155,000 cusecs, and Sukkur upstream, 135,000 cusecs. It was agreed in the meeting that after ensuring abovement-ioned quantity of water - that would mainly be supplied to Sindh - Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal would be opened. The sources were of the view that though the Canal should be opened without any condition, it was good to reach some decision, adding the original problem was attached with India and the Government needed to fight its case with New Delhi that was stealing its water. Our monitoring desk adds: INDUS River System Authority (IRSA) Wednesday increased the water share of Sindh to 240,000 cusecs, reported a private TV channel. The decision was made at a meeting in Islamabad, which was chaired by Irsa Chairman Raqeeb Khan, who was appointed Tuesday both as the member from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Chairmen of Irsa. Talking to newsmen after the meeting, Raqeeb said Chashma-Jhelum Link Canal would be reopened after three days following the inflow of water through Guddu Barrage. The meeting decided to raise the water share of Sindh to 240,000 cusecs, that of Balochistan to 13,000 cusecs, and of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to 3,000 cusecs, adding that the decisions had been made with consensus. The IRSA Chairman said the water needs of Sindh would be met within the next couple of days.
