Indian minister announces to stop Pakistan’s share of water
NEW DELHI (92 News) – Indian Minister for Water Resources Nitin Gadkari has announced to stop Pakistan’s share of water.
Gadkari said that Indian share of water of three rivers is flowing to Pakistan and three projects are being built to divert it to the River Yamuna. After diverting the flow, water will be given to the people of Indian Punjab and Jammu Kashmir.
India has resorted to water terrorism under the cover of the Pulwama incident. After the Pulwama incident, India attacked the culture and banned the Pakistani artistes. Later, it withdrew the most favoured nation (MFN) status for Pakistan. Now it is planning water terrorism against Pakistan.
It is not the first time that India has used water as a weapon against Pakistan. In 2016, India had cancelled the talks to be held under the Indus Waters Treaty after the Uri incident.
