Agenda of non-construction of dams will not be fulfilled: CJP
September 12, 2018
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Wednesday asserted that the agenda of non-construction of dams will not be fulfilled. A bench headed by the chief justice heard Dadhocha dam case. During the hearing, the CJP Nisar remarked that those who opposing the construction of dams are working on someone else’s agenda. “We will not allow the agenda of non-construction of dams to be fulfilled. They are being built for the future of upcoming generations,” he also asserted. “No need to say that the Supreme Court should form a political party, he said. He added that if anyone tries to defame the apex court, he cannot be easily ignored. The CJP pronounced that that dam will be constructed at every cost and no compromise will be made on the construction of dams. Later, the Supreme Court sought a time frame for construction of Dadhocha dam from the Punjab government. A day earlier, CJ Nisar expressed similar reaction during the hearing of a case pertaining to early construction of Punjab Kidney and Liver Institute. Saqib Nisar sternly remarked that those calling dam funds ‘begging’ should be ashamed of themselves.
