When politicians talk of the need for building consensus on Kalabagh dam, they completely ignore the consensus already achieved in the Water Apportionment Accord of 1991. IRSA would not have replaced WAPDA except for a consensus between the four provinces. Nor would Sindhs share in all future dams would have increased at the cost of Punjab, without a consensus. Engineers from Sindh could not have been posted at major headworks of Punjab either without a consensus. The province of Pakhtoonkhwah would not have been given a 14 percent share in all future dams without a consensus on building a right bank canal at Kalabagh dam, without which that proposed share can never be utilized. Punjab would not have been given a 37 percent share without a consensus on the left bank canal at Kalabagh dam. When Sindh has been guaranteed 2. 2 maf additional water from Kalabagh dam, same as for Punjab, what more do their politicians want? -KHURSHID ANWER, Lahore, June 16.
