ISLAMABAD (Online): Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has directed Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA) Tariq Mehmood to ensure availability of water to people living in different sectors of Islamabad, besides devising strategy to overcome water needs in future. Sources told this agency, the Prime Minister also asked recently appointed Chairman CDA to devise strategy keeping in view the needs of water in future. CDA takes water from Simli dam to overcome water needs in Islamabad but followed by mushroom increase in population Simli dam is insufficient to fulfill water requirements. On the other hand, CDA has decided to execute the Ghazi Barotha Water Supply Project (GBWSP) costing Rs 47 billion to overcome water shortage in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.   The Authority has submitted the feasibility report of the project to Indus River System Authority (IRSA) for approval. CDA is trying to remove the concerns of Sindh, NWFP especially IRSA, which are not in favour of sharing water with the twin cities because the provinces are already running short of water to meet the irrigation needs. Due to reservations of provinces about the project, the government in the current year's Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) has not allocated funds for the project, but CDA is trying to convince the provincial representatives. On the directives of Federal Water and Power Ministry, Rawalpindi development authority has also been inducted in the project.   According to the plan, a separate water supply line would be laid for Rawalpindi from Ghazi-Barotha along with a 65-km supply line for Islamabad. Besides, CDA is planning to construct two more dams in the Capital. One for fulfilling the drinking water needs of the Capital residents and the other to meet the future demand after the expansion of the city. Almost everyday the authority receives 800-900 complaints of water shortage from various localities of the Capital but majority of them were not responded. Besides the filtration plants installed by CDA in various sectors are also out of order.
