“ Kalabagh Dam: A Symbol of Victimization of Punjab By Other Provinces”.

With the large number of deaths and destruction due to floods, continuous shortage of electricity in the country and continuous shortage of water at the time of need in rest of year has made the lives of people of Pakistan completely intoleratable. Now every one has started questioning the role of state and governments for bringing their lives in such a miserable condition, therefore it is necessary to analyze the root causes for all these miseries and painful condition from which people of Pakistan are suffering. Pending Kalabagh Dam: Pending Kalabagh and other dams are main root cause for most of the problems of people of Pakistan, but in fact its situation and location just makes it the future pumping heart of Pakistani nation, due to its importance and ability to solve the most of the problems of People of Pakistan, enemies of Pakistan are very proactive in making opposition to this dam ,and the enemies of Pakistan are making use of tactics of ethnocentrism and provincialism for opposing this dam, so that people of Pakistan can never ever be able to solve their problems. Civilized nations of the world build and maintain large reservoirs of currency in banks, fuel oil in tanks, gas in pressurized tanks, food and other items of needs in ware houses and cold storages, but the enemies of Pakistan are not allowing the storage of water in dams which is one of the most basic necessity of humans, plants and animals, and just want that there should be no water management and development on the only and sole life line of Pakistan which is River Indus and they just want that its water should continue to waste in the sea. Victimization of Punjab: The politicians of three smaller provinces of Pakistan are very active in victimizing and maligning the people of larger province of Punjab and are trying to force their vindicative desires and ill wishes on the largest provinces of Pakistan against their interests, These enemies are very proactive in two provinces of Pakistan, one is Sind and other is PuktunKhwa. Politicians of these two provinces always had played a negative role in the life of Pakistan. In fact the largest genocide of 3.0 million people of Pakistan committed in 1971 in East Pakistan was planned by General Yahya Khan and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

Sind increasing irrigated land near coastal area in Badin and at the same time making propaganda that there is intrusion of sea in Badin as Punjab is stealing water. for Thal Canal. Sind: Some facts about this province are: Before floods politicians of Sind used to say that there is no water in the system for Kalabagh Dam. . from such hypocrisy every one can sense the effects of disease of provincialism. According to politicians of this province there is shortage of water for Chasma Jehlum Link Canal. the problem from which these ruins have not suffered during last 4500 years.0 Million Acre feet. Moreover these two provinces are the main hub of disease of ethnic and hatred base provincial politics. There is lot of water to grow rice in the Larkana so much that ruins of Moen Jo Daro are suffering from problem of water logging.0 million Acre feet was unable to stop flood.both were belonging from these two provinces. and as a whole For Punjab. while infect even storage of just ½ million acre feet in Kalabagh Dam was more than enough to break the peak of flood. For Kalabagh Dam. therefore Kalabagh Dam having capacity of 1. and now after floods they are saying there was flood of 3. Sind wasting one crore acre feet of water in sea but still there is shortage of water and making propaganda that Punjab is stealing water. it was the super flood which was required to control and not that of normal flood. as now Kalabagh Dam is not existing people should face such disasters without any mercy in coming years also. Sind producing rice crop in most of its arid and barren areas with no rain fall but still there is shortage of water and making propaganda that Punjab is stealing water. but there is lot of water to waste in Arabian sea at Thatta and Badin. Hypocrisy and hegemony of Politicians of Sind is also obvious from following facts Sind producing more crops each year with more consumption of water at the same time politicians making propaganda that Punjab is stealing water. Sind opposing any project on River Indus like Kalabagh Dam and any other project but still demanding more water.

but it is justified to waste about one million acre feet water in the sea and that is also not from its share but from the share of other provinces so that people of Punjab could be thrown in poverty and darkness due to shortage of water and electricity. USA and India have large number of rivers and fresh water reservoirs but instead of wasting their water in sea they are using saline water of sea for agriculture and other purposes but we Pakistanies have just one river and even then we are wasting that one by the foolish politicians and Government of Sind.Sind will not allow other provinces of Pakistan to take one bucket of water and will not allow to grow one straw of grass. Only by taking out water from sea can stop sea intrusion and by discarding more and more sweet water into sea will aggravate the problem of so called sea intrusion. Israel and Saudi Arabia are using water of Sea by desalination for their use so much that sea is drying and drying day by day but we Pakistanis are wasting our sweet water into sea what a unique type of crime and foolish act. There is lot of water so much that we are pouring sweet water on saline Mangrove plants of sea. There is lot of water to sink coastal areas of Badin and Thatta under Indus water. and Chasma Jehlum canal.and will prevent wastage of sweet water and fertile sand in the sea . The credit stands with Sind that despite obtaining ample water and ample crops it’s always ready to victimize and malign Punjab. Preservation and storage of water in Kalabagh Dam will increase agriculture land. . In present scenario according to Sind polticians it is not justified to use water for generation of electricity and preservation of water for future use and prevention of floods by building Kalabagh Dam. it’s making good use of politics of balckmailing and water. Kalabagh Dam. Kurlee Lake so much that now there is need to waste the water of these lakes in sea.There is lot of Indus water to waste in Manchar Lake.generation of electricity . but will like to waste water in the sea as fishes of sea are very chronically thirsty. Thal Canal. Advanced nations of the world are recycling and treating drain water for reuse while politician and Government of Sind is wasting and polluting sweet water into the sea.

but as Klagabagh Dam is on the border of Punjab therefore it should not be built. if Punjab is not giving water then from where the water of Kulree . And as per Balouchistan Vision GAS and coal extracted from Balouchistan are one of the most clean source of energy and Kalabagh will pollute air and land resouces and people will drown in Kalabagh and no one is dying in the coal caves of Balochistan. PuktoonKhuwa: And as per wisdom of Politicians of PuktunKhwa.sugar can and banana which are highly dependent on water and at the same time demanding wastage of water in sea and objecting even on preservation of water in Kalabagh. if there is shortage of water then why Sind is cultivating rice. on one side people of Pakistan are suffering from acute wastage of water and electricity and on other side Government is wasting sweet water in the sea which is not only causing sea rise and erosion of coastal land for whole of subcontinent. on use of water for agriculture in Punjab. Punjab Should stop its people living along river Indus from Kalabagh to Sadiqabad not to use water for irrigation because Provincialism is more important than Humanity. Balochistan and Pukhtunkhwa are against Kalabagh Dam because as per Sind logic Thar Coal is better than Kalabagh as Kalabagh will emmit BLACK SMOKE and Thar Coal will emmit fresh air full of Oxygen.cultivation of crops such as rice.Government of Pakistan is leaving no stone unturned for sinking delta dwellers people of Bangladesh and Island dweller people of Maldives under sea by wasting about 10 Million Acres feet water of River Indus from the catchments area of whole of Pakistan in the sea and is not preserving and storing that water in dams like Kalabagh and Basha.bannana and sugarcane which are highly water dependent. . As Sind. including Bangladesh and Maldives but is also harmful for saline habitat fishes and saline and sea plants like Mangroves On one side there is shortage of water in Pakistan on other side in Sind there is wastage of water. Tarbella Dam in Pukhtoon Khuwa is so important that three rivers of Punjab were sold to India by Frontier belonging president General Ayoub for construction of Tarbella and Pakistan can be broken for royalty and revenue of Tarbella dam but Kalabagh dam is not good looking as it is in Punjab and all dams should be built well within the Pukhtonnkhwa from Basha to Attock. if Punjab is not giving water then how from Larkana to Thatta area is suffering from problem of water logging.Mancahr lakes have arrived. Sind wants Punjab to obey its desire for wastage of water as it is mentioned in 1991 water agreement.

Karachi and Sind. and which land of Punjab should be cultivated or not.enviroment in Punjab but Punjab Govt foolish leaders has not shown any concern about that project. From above facts it is quite clear that three provinces of Pakistan are openly involved in victimizing to alone fourth province of Punjab.If Punjab govt can not protect the rights of people living alongside river Indus. All provinces want Provincial autonomy but Punjab should open or close its canals . which Dam (hydrel project ) should be constructed or not. for example Sind Province Government and Assembly has started to give suggestions to Punjab that which Canal should be kept opened or closed. From NFC award it is evident that Punjab Govt has sacrificed the rights of people just for pleasing those who always hate punjab.In every super flood city of Nowshera sink under water. while Punjab Government is completely silent about such interference. Moreover Punjab Govt has not raised any concern about the suffering of people of Punjab in Baluchistan.so that those people can protect their rights themselves. Failure of Punjab Govertnment: Government of Punjab has chronically failed in protecting the rights of people of Punjab. Thar coal project will have adverse effects on each and every living organism. situation has so much deteriorated that other provinces which are very vocal about Provincial autonomy are interfering in the affairs of Punjab by violating provincial autonomy of Punjab . Due to incompetent Punjab Government . Which is evident from the fact that it has not made any efforts for the construction of Kalabagh Dam while Govt of Sind is very proactive even in wasting the water of river Indus in Arabian sea. iirigate its land and construct Dams as per desire of other provinces and after asking from other provinces Because it is necessary for unity and prosperity of Pakistan as when there will be no agriculture. .no electricity and no water then Pakistan will be more united and more prosperous. while Sind Government is busy in wasting River Indus water in Arabian sea which is a sin and crime against humanity but Punjab government is making no objection about such wastage.it will be better to separate out those areas from Punjab.atmosphere. but it is necessary to continue to rehabilitate that city again and again because that is the hub of smuggling.crimes and drugs where as Kalabagh dam should be blown with bombs.

Allowing and accepting wastage of River Indus water in sea in 1991 by Province of Sind is a fatal and non forgivable crime of Punjab Government. which is simply impossible. Punjab never questioned from Sind why Sind is demanding sweet water for coastal areas while there are so many varities of both wheat and other plants which even can grow in saline land. In Karachi it is very common observation that sea fishes do not survive in sweet water even for Minutes. Accepting wastage of River water in sea is like accepting wastage of wheat. Politicians of other provinces want to make Punjab a crippled province but foolish government of Punjab is not able to comprehend that. As they never questioned or monitored that why Sweet water of Indus is being discarded in sea. a sick . because these enemies will never agree on any point which will be for the welfare of people of Pakistan.rice. which infact will be injurious and harmful for saline fishes and plants of sea. Lethargic Federal Government: Instead of understanding the mentality of enemies of PAKISTAN.crippled Punjab wil be a liability and not an asset for Pakistan. Punjab never questioned from Sind why large agricultuure area of Sind about 38 % is suffering from water logging. as that is not making decisions in the national interest and as per desires of people of Pakistan but inafct making decisions as per blackmailing of . Punjab Government never questioned from Sind Government that why they are wasting sweet water for saline plants of Mangroos which very finely grow in saline water as on coastal areas of Karachi there is no sweet water but highly dense forest of Mangroos are present there even in front of Karachi Port Trust.Federal government is 100 % responsible for the deaths and destruction due to this flood. Federal government is waiting for the consensus on issue of water and dams.Punjab gopvernment and its water experts are also responsible for wastage of water in Sind.sugar and cotton in the sea.

It is the responsibility of Federal Government to direct Sind not to waste water in province which is causing water logging in Sind and causing damage to land. its very strange that Karachi city government is trying to install plants of desalination for obtaining sweet water from sea for city while Sind Government is wasting sweet water of Indus about one crore Acre feet water in the sea what a foolish act and what a crime against humanity. on one side there is ONE MIGHTY SEA AND on other side there is a just one river coming from arid zone.ethnic parties such as ANP. The main forest of Mangroves of Sind coastal areas are located in Karachi but Sind is not providing even drinking water to citizens of Karachi. . Those who adovcate wastage of River Indus in sea and oppose PRESERVATION AND STORAGE OF water at Kalabagh are infact the enemies of Pakistan.The river will infact rise the level of sea ultimately leading to sea to spread on land and will further cause water logging and salinity of land. Logic that river water will stop the intrusion of sea is the most foolish Idea. Sind Government should make arrangement for more and more extraction of water from sea and desalination of sea water and use of sweet water in saline land should be completely restricted. It is the responsibility of Federal Government to direct Punjab and Sind goverment for construction of Dams like Kalabagh to preserve water and generation of electricity. It is the responsibility of Federal Government to make laws against polluting of River water as Sind is polluting River water. It is the responsibility of Federal Government to make laws against polluting of water.land and air as Sind is planning to do by polluting these by smoke of Thar coal.MQM and Jijye Sind who are traders of hatred and are enemies of innocent people from day first and are involved in target killing of noble and innocent people of Pakistan It is the responsibility of Federal Government to direct Sind not to commit crime by polluting river Indus water by wasting it in saline sea water. It is the responsibility of Federal Government to make laws against wasting of River water as Sind is polluting River water.

The simple logic is that those who do not want dams like Kalabagh to be built.UK.India. Corruption. illiteracy. there is need to eastablish salt Industry in that area instead of agriculture while by wastage of river water in sea we are wasting sweet water and also wasting salt of the land which is an important mineral and pouring river water in sea there will be just further rise in sea water and more intrusion of sea water in all coastal areas. terrorism and extremism. The weak economy foments societal discontent and political instability. The forces and lobbies that opposed Pakistan and those that are stuck up in their narrow grooves of provincialism would not like Pakistan to become an economically viable country.AKRAM KHAN NIAZI. darkness.China and other neighbor countries) to persuade government of Pakistan to take care of its people and make dams and flood control projects for countering shortage of water and electricity otherwise foolish rulers of Pakistan will always remain sitting by keeping their hands over hands in their foolish paradise waiting for centuries for consensus building for Dams in the presence of pus and poision of provincialism and like beggars themselves will do nothing and suffering of people of Pakistan will continue forever along with floods. Karachi. That is the spectacle that patriotic Pakistanis have been witnessing since the inception of Pakistan. Conclusion: It is the responsibility of international community (USA. Disease of Provincialism in Politicians of NWFP and Sind is mainly responsible for floods.Pakistan.EU. Written by: M. provincialism. poverty.If there is problem of salinity and sea intrusion on coastal areas of Sind. ethnocentriosm. they are enemies of the country or at least don’t want Pakistan to have vibrant economy and social peace.power and water shortage mayhem and the resultant chaos in the society due to tormenting blackouts and long power outrages and death due to floods. .
