India to stop share of river waters flowing to Pakistan


India’s rage towards Pakistan is only building up with each passing day as the country has decided to stop the share of river waters flowing to Pakistan. Taking to micro blogging site Twitter, Minister for Water Resources Nitin Gadkari said that India will divert water from Eastern rivers and supply it to people in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab.

India has the right to use water flowing in eastern rivers, such as, the Beas, the Ravi and the Sutlej while Pakistan controls the right to use water in western rivers, namely, the Indus, the Jhelum and the Chenab, according to the Indus Waters Treaty.

“The construction of dam has started at Shahpur- Kandi on Ravi river. Moreover, UJH project will store our share of water for use in J&K and the balance water will flow from 2nd Ravi-BEAS Link to provide water to other basin states”, said Gadkari over Twitter.
