ISLAMABAD (APP) - Pakistans Commissioner Indus Water Basin Treaty (IWBT) Jamaat Ali Shah has accused India of violating IWBT by constructing Kishanganga, Nimmo-Bazgo and other Hyderopower Projects on the rivers Chenab, Indus and Jehlum. He was giving briefing to the Prime Minister Inspection Committee (PMIC) in meeting here on Thursday. Malik Amjad Ali Noon Chairman PMIC presided over the meeting. Jamaat Ali Shah said that India has plans to construct over 100 Hydropower Projects on the three rivers (Jehlum, Indus and Chenab) which would affect not only the flow of water in Pakistan but the environment of the region would also be severely affected. Jamaat Ali Shah said that India had nearly completed the 22-km tunnel to divert Kishanganga (Neelum) waters to Wullar Lake in violation of the Indus Waters Treaty and was working to complete the 330MW project by 2016. The project would severely affect the Pakistans right over the river, reduce the river flows into Pakistan and minimise its power generation capacity of the 969MW Neelum Jhelum Hydropower project near Muzaffarabad in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, he said. 'With the diversion of this water, Pakistan would face deficit of 21 per cent water which would reduce 16 per cent power production causing the loss of about Rs 5 billion in one year, he added. He said the next meeting between the two countries on the issue of Kishanganga Dam is expected to be held in January or February next. 'Pakistan has also reservations on the Wuller barrage in Kashmir where the Indian plans include storing water and then tunneling it to the Wuller Lake, where it is constructing 800MW power house, he said. He said Pakistan believes Wullar barrage can be used as: (a) a geostrategic weapon a means to intimidate Pakistan, (b) potential to disrupt the triple canal project of Pakistan (upper Jhelum, upper Chenab, Lower Bari Doab canals), (c) to badly affect the Neelum-Jehlum hydropower project, (d) to affect agriculture in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, (e) would dry 5.6 million acres of land of Punjabs cultivable land, in case Kishanganga water is blocked and the excess is diverted to Wuller barrage, (f) would result in loadshedding, if Pakistan does not get enough water to run its turbines, (g) would dry Mangla dam. Jamaat Shah said that India started the Wuller barrage project quietly in 1985 and Pakistan got information about this project in 1987. Pakistan raised objections with the result the work was suspended which has not been resumed so far. 'So far 13 secretary level rounds of talks have been held between the two countries but the issue is still pending, he added.
