KARACHI: Describing the Chashma-Jehlum Link Canal Power Project as impractical, Sindh Irrigation Minister Murad Ali Shah has alleged that Pakistan Muslim League-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif and Punjab’s Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif were behind this project.
“We will also not respect the institution, which will disrespect the democracy,” he said.
Speaker Nisar Ali Khuhro presided over the Sindh Assembly session today.
Speaking at a point of order, MPA Kalsoom Chandio condemned the Dadu bomb blast and demanded to keep an eye on the movement of Afghan nationals and religious seminaries.
Following the question-answer session on a point of order, provincial minister Sassi Palejo urged Punjab to end its stubbornness on the issue of water.
Another MPA Humera Alwani said that the water released in Chashma-Jehlum Link Canal should be diverted to Kotri Downstream. It is Sindh’s water, she said.
Murad Ali Shah said that farmers of D.G. Khan and Muzaffargarh were also being punished along with farmers of Sindh and Blaochistan.
