Pak objections to Kishanganga projects fails to cut ice in J&K

Jammu and Kashmir government on Monday said Pakistani objection will not hamper the work on the 330 megawatt Kishanganga power project in Gurez area of Bandipora district in north Kashmir.

“We fail to understand what Pakistan is up to. Last month a team of Indian and Pakistani Indus water commission had visited along with the court of arbitration. They inspected the project thoroughly to prepare a report”, said Basharat Ahmad Dhar, power commissioner J&K.

‘Controversial project: Indian version’

Pakistan’s anxieties as the lower riparian are understandable; even with a ‘water-tight’ treaty in place, there will always be apprehensions that this treaty could be violated, but Mr Malik’s assertion that “scores of Indian dams” are already in “flagrant breach of the treaty” is incorrect. Pakistan’s apprehensions regarding shared waters should be addressed by all means but on the basis of fact and reason, not emotions and misconceptions.

Pakistan moves CoA for stay on Kishenganga project

In a belated but a sane development, Pakistan has filed a petition in the Court of Arbitration (CoA) seeking an order to ask India to put on hold the ongoing construction on controversial Kishenganga project till the final decision of the court, top man of the Ministry of Water and Power told The News.

Pakistan’s flood victims still need support

The worst floodwaters in Pakistan’s history began their devastating journey last summer, carving a path of destruction that affected more than 18 million people and left one-fifth of the country submerged. The good news is that the humanitarian crisis has ended. Pakistan’s communities are rebuilding, but this part of the story is taking place in the absence of cameras, as the floodwaters and international support for recovery have receded. This underfunded post-disaster phase must have the world’s attention if survivors are to get back on their feet.
