Dr Malik says NP to resist supply of water from Mirani Dam to Gwadar.

QUETTA, November 10, 2009 (Balochistan Times): Central President National Party (NP) Senator Dr. Abdul Malik has strongly flayed recently approved project of government amount worth 4 billion rupees, to supply water from Mirani Dam to Gwadar Cantonment and Industrial State and has called for early cancellation of the project. Talking to local news agency he said that NP will resist all such anti masses policies of the incumbent government as they are designed to convert majority Balochs into minority. He said that thousands of acre of land in Dasht has rendered barren due to construction of dam, the water of which is used not for agriculture purposes but for supplying to cantonment and industrial zones of Gwadar under the cover of facilitating masses. Agriculture of Dasht has badly affected due to storage of water in the dam as most part of Dasht land is irrigated by rain water he maintained. It may be mentioned here that government has approved a project to supply water from Mirani Dam to Gwadar. Dr. Malik said that NP since launching of mega projects in Balochistan opposed them as they were anti Baloch projects and if government wanted to materialize this project by force so that would have negative repercussion.
