The 'Economist' has given a grim warning about Indias future intentions of diverting the Indus which irrigates 80 percent of Pakistans farmlands and provides livelihood to a big portion of its 18 crore people. An assessment by theUSSenate states thatIndiacan store enough water in its many dams to limit supplies toPakistanduring the crucial growing season.Indias present capacity to store 33 percent of the annual-river-flows is projected to increase to 50 percent because of its dam building activity. While our measly 9 percent will reduce as the dams silt up. All letters which highlight these dangers fail to mention the obvious that we urgently need to increase the present low storage capacity. While there is only so much we can do to stopIndia, no one is stopping us from building dams. The 18 crore people of Pakistan will pay a very heavy price for this fear of the unmentionable by the letter writers. ENGR KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, December 13.
