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.
