ISLAMABAD Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday said any headway on the Kalabagh Dam project could be achieved only if the provinces reached a consensus on the issue. The provinces adopted very positive approach in the case of 7th NFC Award and reached a consensus without the Federation. They can sit together and evolve a consensus (on Kalabagh Dam), if they want so, Gilani told this while talking to Waqt News on Wednesday after receiving a copy of the referendum conducted by daily Nawa-i-Waqt regarding Kalabagh Dam as well as a letter written to him by Majid Nizami, Editor-in-Chief of Nawa-i-Waqt Group of Newspapers. Appreciating the efforts of Majid Nizami in this regard, the Prime Minister said it was the need of the hour to exhibit unity and solidarity, as the country was facing various challenges, which required greater unity. Gilani said the appropriate forum to discuss such issues was the Council of Common Interests (CCI), where all the four provinces can evolve a consensus and make headway in this regard. He added, However other than this, if some people talk about such matters, they are playing to the galleries and they do not mean it. The Prime Minister said that in principle he had no disagreement (on Kalabagh Dam), but the timing and consensus was important, adding, we should respect the mandate of provinces. To a question as if difference of opinion arises among the provinces in the CCI, the Prime Minister said, then the matter would go to the joint sitting of Parliament. About rumours of change on the political front, Gilani remarked, Wishes cannot be restrained.
