ISLAMABAD (Online) - Chairman Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Maulana Fazlur Rehman Monday urged the government to construct small dams in line with Indus Water Treaty rather than wasting time in holding talks with India on water issue. Talking to media after meeting of the committee, Fazl said India prolonged the dialogue process on water issue and constructed Baglihar Dam by buying the time in contravention of Indus Water Treaty. Pakistan was now suffering a shortfall of 200,000 acre-feet, which had also been acknowledged the Indus Water Commissioner in the meeting, he added. In order to compensate the loss caused by decline in water flows from Kashmir, water reservoirs should be constructed, he urged. It will not only help meet water needs but also impart momentum to power generation, he remarked. He said the committee directed the Ministry of Water and Power to form a think tank comprising leading professionals who should present proposals to the govt on the issue. Earlier, Federal Minister for Water and Power Raja Pervez Ashraf, officials of the ministry and Indus Water Commissioner Jamat Ali Shah briefed the committee with reference to construction of Baglihar dam and quantum of water shortfall being faced by the country.
