lunar sighting. Kalabagh dam. Or holiday on Friday. They can't agree. Can agree on Taliban?. Hassan Nisar in today's paper.
“We have decided to build this dam at any cost, even if it requires us to tighten our belts” said Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal. The Bhasha dam project, he said, was “as important as Pakistan’s nuclear programme once was, if not more”. “It is a matter of life and death for us now,” the minister said while explaining to an audience of US scholars and researchers at the International Food Policy Research Institute, Washington. Is Kalabagh Dam more vital or Bhasha Dam? Or both? And Pakistan's nuclear programme was NEVER important. An economy that could not sustain itself went ahead with a nuclear programme so much so, as the mocking words go, 'we are still eating grass!'. Start questioning and break this culture of silently observing what the politicians do.

WE get readily inflamed on being accused of being a failed state or failing society. But can we fathom the reasons or logic to explain even to a sympathetic observer our policies as a state or our priorities or reactions as a society? There is no denying the feel-good value of platitudes. To be told that you have tremendous hidden potential as individuals and untapped resources as a state, or that things aren’t as bad as they are made out to be can be uplifting. But are we not headed in a direction that is truly frightening? This is no prophecy for doom. It is meant to consider what we would say to our kids 30 years from now when they ask us what we were thinking while merrily pursuing our suicide mission. To love a country or society like you love your parents is one thing: unconditional love, gratitude for what they did for you, and lack of desire to change them. To love a country or society as you love your kids is another: unconditional love together with responsibility for the kind of people they b ...
We are being told now that we are almost out of water. Imagine a country of 270 to 330m without water. Are we building more water reservoirs to cater for our growing needs? No, we’d rather keep fighting about the poisoned Kalabagh dam. Are we writing laws to create catchment areas in rural and urban areas to harvest rainwater that we have in abundance, as devastating floods remind us each year? No, we’d rather unravel the conspiracy of the Indus Water Treaty first.
Surprise, surprise - Lahore Chamber of Commerce wants the government to re-open negotiations on Kalabagh Dam:
All those who were seeking my comments i must say that The entire patriotic narrative that RAW is backing up Khawarij, political traitors and terrorists in Pakistan has been most powerfully depicted while accepting the judicial collapse in the country which has failed to punish the terrorists. The dirty role of ANP and all those who are opposed to Kalabagh Dam have been most strongly exposed. Respect for army and anti-terrorist police have gone through the sky and the narrative that we should talk to the Khawarij has been totally destroyed. But the most powerful aspect which has come to light is that the nation was hungry for a patriotic media and the narrative of Geo and SAFMA has been most comprehensively defeated in the country. The entire hostile information war, Aman Ki Asha, SAFMA and GEO have been humiliated beyond repair now. alhamdolillah ! ARY has emerged as a patriotic voice which is willing to stand with the nation, army and the ideology. We would strongly encourage ARY to build upon this resp ...
Conduct referendum on KBD, privatise Discos: Mansha November 03, 2013 SALMAN ABDUHU Conduct referendum on KBD, privatise Discos: Mansha LAHORE - Nishat Group chairman Mian Muhammad Mansha has said that the PML-N government is moving in the right direction as it is taking correct decisions in spite of several challenges. He expressed hope that the positive results of government decisions will start coming in from Jan 2014. Talking to TheNation Editor Salim Bokhari in his programme ‘Insight’ on Waqt News, Mian Mansha said that PM Nawaz is doing a good and positive politics, as he offered KPK government to the PTI and accepted mandate of the Pakistan Peoples Party in Sindh. Nawaz even did not interfere in Balochistan despite majority and got Dr. Abdul Malik elected as the CM of the province with a view to pacify the angry Balochis, he added. However, he admitted that the issue of appointment of high officials is pending yet and it would be resolved very soon, he expressed hope. Mian Muhammad Mansha, who ...

Farooq Jan We strongly condemn Imran Khan statement regarding KalaBagh dam. We want to tell him that your intentions and anti pukhthuns agenda is becomming clear day by day.Pukhthuns have have now realized that you have been brought by Punjab,s army,ISI and their terrorist wing Talibans. This dream of your Kalabagh will never come true. This statement shows that you are still a cricketer and yet to learn politics.Pukhthuns will slap at your face and your fate will be a lesson for other anti pukhthun politicians.
29-10-13 Leaders of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Awami National Party (ANP) during a Senate session on Tuesday accused the federal government of violating clauses of the Constitution by not providing gas to industrial units in the provinces of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.The session was being headed by Chairman Senate Nayyar Hussain Bokhari.Federal Minister for Petroleum Shahid Khaqan Abbasi of the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) told the Senate that the federal government could not provide any gas in newer areas due to the acute shortage of the resource.He further announced the decision of implementing urgent fees of Rs25000 for the installation of new gas connections, adding that after obtaining approval from the Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra), 10 per cent of all new gas connections would be installed on the basis of urgent fees.During the session, Awami National Party (ANP) leader Senator Haji Adeel said providing gas and water was the basic duty of the government.He said i ...

Mehmood Khan Achakzai, born in 1948, is the chairman of the the biggest Pakhtun nationalist party based in Balochistan province, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP). He is also the son of Abdus Samad Khan Achakzai, who led the now defunct Pakhtunkhwa National Awami Party. After his father was assassinated in a bomb attack in Quetta in December 1973 he was elected as the chairman and took control of the reins of the party. He completed his BSc in Engineering in 1971 from University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Peshawar. Achakzai was elected a Member of National Assembly for the first time in the 1993 elections from Quetta’s NA-198 constituency with the backing of the then Pakistan Muslim League. He was the only party member representing Pakhtun nationalist interests during the 2002 elections from the province, which was dominated by Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) victories. The party has opposed the Kalabagh Dam project and Mahmood Khan Achakzai has vocally expressed his reservations over the pr ...

Water Crisis in Pakistan and its remedies SOURCES OF WATER God has blessed Pakistan with abandoned water resources, with water flowing down the Himalayas and Karakorum heights, from the world’s largest glaciers, a free and unique bounty of nature for this land of alluvial plains. As a result of this natural resource, today we have the world’s marvelous and the largest irrigation system that irrigates over 16 million hectors of land, out of 34 million hectors of cultivable land available. Basically we have two major sources of water i.e. surface water & ground water. SURFACE WATER In surface water we have three hydrologic units. First one is Indus Basin River. (a) Indus Basin River At the time of independence, we had about 67 maf water available for diversion; this amount increased to about 85 maf by 1960. In 1960 Pakistan signed a water treaty “Indus water treaty” with India, which brought major changes in the sources of water for Pakistan. In that treaty the right of three eastern rivers i.e. Bea ...

In December 2004, General Pervez Musharraf, President of Pakistan, announced that he would build the dam in the larger interest of Pakistan. On May 26, 2008, Federal Minister for Water and Power of Pakistan, Raja Pervez Ashraf, said that the "Kalabagh Dam would not be constructed" and the project has been cancelled.[citation needed] He said due to the "opposition from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and other stakeholders, the project was no longer feasible".[1] However, after the worst flood (2010) in Pakistan, the prime minister of Pakistan, Yousaf Raza Gilani, stated that the devastation of floods would be less if Kalabagh dam were built.[2]
LAHORE: Prime Minister in-waiting Nawaz Sharif has been urged to start work on Kalabagh Dam to get rid of the menace of load shedding that has pushed the industrial sector on the verge of collapse.

Linguistic war on media. By Shafqat Tanvir Mirza Since President Zardari stepped in six months ago to show-down the Sharifs through full-throated support to Seraiki province supported by almost half of people’s traditional feudal representatives from south Punjab belonging to almost all parties, especially the PPP. This was the weakest point of Zardari’s anti-majority province campaign, which actually started with his declaration that the chapter of Kalabagh Dam had been closed forever and conversion of purely ethnic province formerly known as the Frontier. Incidentally, the Frontier was the bitterest opponent of Kalabagh dam and in 2008 the America for her Afghan policy was warmly wooing the Pushtoon parties, particularly the ANP headed by Asfandyar Wali Khan. The PPP now has the only way to show-down with the PML-N through a demand for partition of the Punjab on linguistic basis. PML-N’s performance in the process of 18th Amendment renaming of the former Frontier province, and water and power issu ...
Importance Of Irrigation  1.Most of the plain areas of Pakistan have been built by alluvial soil brought by the River Indus and its tributaries.But due to deficient rainfall ,agricultural activities cannot be performed without adopting some artificial means of irrigation.So the areas lying between the rivers have provided irrigation facilities through canals and various types of crops are grown in these areas.  2.The Rivers of our country used to take millions of gallons of water into the Arabian Sea.That water is being used for canal irrigation and a number of dry desert areas have become fertile and productive regions of our country.  3.The supply of water in our rivers remains irregular during the year.To regulate the water supply throughout the year the year the water is stored by constructing barrages,dams and weirs etc.  4.The slope of our country lies from north east towards south.This helps in the construction of canals and water can easily be distributed through canals from higher ...

KP demands review of Ghazi Barotha project By Ali Hazrat Bacha | 2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM PESHAWAR, Feb 22: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Friday demanded the review of Ghazi Barotha hydropower project due to objection to its design. `Ghazi Barotha project should be revisited because its execution is not in line with the original design. The undue spanning of canal has caused severe water shortage in parts of our province. We`ll not allow anyone to steal our water,` provincial information minister told a seminar at the Peshawar Press Club. Watan Welfare Society (WWS) organised the seminar titled `Water Supply Scheme to the Twin Cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi` The minister said Awami National Party had strongly resisted the construction of Kalabagh Dam and would go all-out to get the Ghazi Barotha project`s design reviewed as per the original plan. He said the agreement of Ghazi Barotha hydropower project had been violated due to increase in the spanning of the relevant canal and therefore, water of ...
Division of Punjab is part of plan for disintegration of Pakistan February 17, 2013 Leave a Comment 7 By Usman Khalid, Director Rifah Institute of Foreign affairs (RIFA) In an article titled ‘A mutiny Grows in the Punjab’, Anatol Lieven (author of Pakistan: A Hard Country) wrote the following: “The U.S. strategy toward Pakistan has been focussed on trying to get Islamabad to give serious help to Washington’s campaign against the Afghan Taliban. There are two rather large problems with this approach. The first is that it is never going to happen because Pakistani strategic calculations and the feelings of the country’s population make it impossible…. except in return for U.S. help against India—which Washington also cannot deliver. “The second problem is that it gets America’s real priorities in the region back to front. The war in Afghanistan is a temporary U.S. interest, in which the chief concern is not the reality of victory or defeat as such (if only because neither can be clearly de ...

Lahore High Court should not order Kalabagh Dam, it can only be build with consensus
On Nov 29, LHC Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial directed the federal government to construct the Kalabagh Dam in compliance with the decision of the Council of Common Interests taken on Sept 16, 1991. This is a bold and laudable decision by the LHC chief justice. His decision has been welcomed by the people with great joy. It assured them of the much-needed relief from continuing violation of their fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution, due to unbearable hardship of loadshedding, and water and food scarcity. In fact, the current government had contravened the CCI decision of September 1991 by burying the project in May 2008. The court decision has irked some politicos. Their contention that three provincial assemblies of Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan had passed resolutions against the construction of the dam was nothing but a house of cards. They conveniently forget that the decision by the LHC chief justice to build the dam was based on the fact that its construction was approved ...

I wonder why the Lahore High Court is adamant in reconsidering the Kalabagh Dam issue when elections are just six months away? Construction of this dam now will achieve what? Have any of the previously hyped cases got anywhere? Article 155 (6) of the Constitution which specifically/apparently prohibits the court’s intervention in water-related matters or complaints dealt, or to be dealt with, by the CCI. Courts and zero vision politicians have no right to decide the fate of the project. It’s a question of simple math. For example if one million Pakistanies have to suffer, but two million of the population would benefit from the construction of KBD then it must be built and vice-versa. The overall direct benefits of the dam would be around Rs25 billion per annum, thus the investment cost of project would be repaid within 10 years. There is a need to create an awareness or a consensus among the people across country convincing them that the Kalabagh dam is vital for the country. But surely, is this the ...

Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan Supports Construction of Kalabagh Dam as its in Favor of Pakistan...
Kalabagh Dam INTRODUCTION Irrigated agricultural is the backbone of Pakistan’s economy. At the same time with word’s fastest growing population estimated to touch 150 million marks by the turn of the century, there is a dire need to increase agricultural production. If nothing is done, there would e approximately 25% shortfall in food grain requirements by the year 2000, Judging from current (1997) two million tones import of wheat, by that time, Pakistan could be one of the major food deficit countries in the world. Due to complete stoppage of any sizeable surface water resources development after full commissioning of Tarbala Dam during, 1976, even sustainability of existing irrigated agriculture is in serious jeopardy. With a large arable land, Pakistan still has the potential of bringing several million acres of virgin land under irrigation. An important impediment in the way of this development is insufficient control over flood water of the rivers. With virtually no limit on availability of land ...
Kalabagh Dam Project: Delay in Implementation Problem overview: Integrating stakeholders: The construction of Kalabagh Dam involved stakeholders of local provincial governments whom expressed their dissatisfaction towards the adverse impacts of the dam. Hence, the project is still under consideration because it has not received unanimous support. Meeting information requirements: Construct impact assessment of the Dam has shown that the *** also has adverse impacts to environmental conditions, such as reduce in river flow of rivers downstream. It is always better to be aware of the impact ahead of time so that problems can be managed before it is too late. Background in summary: Shortage of electricity supply generated locally: The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) and Karachi Electric Supply Corporation (KESC) are the main producers involved in power generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. WAPDA has not been able to cope with the demand that is growing at an average rate of ...
INTRODUCTION Kalabagh Dam Project was designed in 1984, with the assistance of the United Nations Development Program; supervised by the World Bank, for the client Water and Power Development Authority of Pakistan. Following the submission of its Project Planning Report it was put up to the Federal and Provincial Governments for approval of the launching of this gigantic project. In the meantime, the project team were asked to complete the Detailed Designs and Contract Documents for making it ready to enter into the implementation stage This task was completed in another two and half years and the project was poised for start of construction in mid 1987. It was estimated to cost US$ 3.46 Billion at June 1987 level and was scheduled to be completed in 6 years, with first generating unit to be commissioned in April 1993. But unfortunately, this programme could not be materialized due to opposition from some Provincial Governments, mainly on political grounds. In spite of a widespread realization of the urge ...

Ayaz Gajani - If your arguments are technically sound then off-course you have a strong case, and we should all support you, causing hurt to people downstream is not our aim; but what if they are not scientifically true? you must allow for this possibility...what if a solution lies in better understanding of issues? could it not be possible?
Kalabagh Dam:- I have read every single comment and have written them down; in jotted points they can be summed up as: Sinking of Nowshera, Misuse of Chashma Jehlum Canal, Sindh will become barren, Sea water will turn inwards, Ecology will be disturbed in Sindh, Tarbella Royalty not paid to KPK, and Why not Bhasha Dam which is the solution to all problems..? However are you aware that both India and now even Afghanistan are making the arguement that if lower riparian ie Pakistan is unable to build dams and each year surplus water flows down to the ocean then they have the right to store and utilize that surplus water...once this argument is complete then Sindh will not get the water any way...Is this on your mind?
Kalabagh Dam? ..I understand many in the Sindh and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa have serious reservations to the Kalabagh Dam. I will however like to read what your fears, concerns and objections are? we will like to discuss it tomorrow and your input will be brought into the discussion.waiting!
