‘Pak getting due share of water under Indus Treaty’
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, Dec 30: Pakistan is getting its due share of river water under the Indus Waters Treaty of 1960, Water and Power Minister Syed Naveed Qamar said today.
In a written reply submitted in the National Assembly or lower house of parliament, Qamar said the treaty allocates waters of the eastern rivers -- Sutlej, Beas and Ravi – to India and those of the western rivers – Indus, Jhelum and Chenab – to Pakistan except for certain specified uses.
In the past, Islamabad had alleged that its share of water was being diverted by dams in Jammu and Kashmir though New Delhi has denied the charge and said the levels of rivers have fallen due to climate change.
Qamar also informed the House that a feasibility report had been completed on a proposal to buy 1,000 MW of power from Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan under the CASA-1000 project through Afghanistan.
