Mr Ikramulah in his column ‘From crisis to solution’, has mentioned that the ruling elite has sabotaged Kalabagh dam, but fails to include Kalabagh dam in his proposed programs which can yield additional power. Kalabagh dam cannot only give us 3600 megawatts of additional power but also the much needed water for irrigation which none of his other programs will. I am sure even Imran Khan in his seminar on energy will not address the issue of Kalabagh dam for fear of backlash from Sindh. Who is it who has turned the whole of Sindh and hence the PPP against Kalabagh dam with their ill conceived statement that 'Sindh will become a desert if Kalabagh dam is built'. Nothing can save Sindh from becoming a desert if Kalabagh dam is not built.
