New Delhi - Amidst growing tension between India and Pakistan post the Uri terror attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to call a meeting to review the 56-year-old Indus Water treaty , Indian media reported on Sunday.

Modi’s meeting to be held today (Monday) will focus on the various aspects of the water-sharing agreement which has always been considered detrimental to India’s interests and largely lopsided in Pakistan’s favour.

The meeting will be attended by top officials of the water resources ministry and the ministry of external affairs who will also brief the prime minister. Under the agreement India has full rights over Sutlej, Beas and Ravi, while Pakistan receives water from Jhelum, Chenab and Indus.

While addressing the people through his Mann Ki Baat radio programme, also on Sunday, Modi said: “The country is proud of its Army.”

Modi reached out to the people of Kashmir who, he said, have begun to “understand anti-national forces and have started distancing themselves from such elements to walk the path of peace” because “reality is dawning on them”.

“The security of people of Kashmir is the responsibility of the government. To maintain law and order, the government has to take some steps,” he said, referring to measures taken in the Valley to deal with protesters on the streets. At the same time, Modi said: “I want to tell security forces as well that the capability, power, laws and rules are for maintenance of law and order. These should be used properly to ensure that people of Kashmir lead a peaceful life.”
