Supreme Court has been moved for immediate construction of the controversial Kalabagh Dam on Tuesday. The petition was filed by Advocate Azam Khan Sultanpuri, who made federal and provincial governments, members of the National Assembly and Senate the parties in his application. Advocate Sultanpuri argued that the World Bank had pledged to fund dams in Pakistan at the time of Indus Basin Treaty. However, these projects were ignored due to political compulsions, he said. He contended that the ongoing floods proved that the deluge could have been averted, had there Kalabagh Dam been constructed. The petition urged the apex court to order immediate construction of Kalabagh Dam so that flood-like natural catastrophes could be prevented in the future.
