IRSA’s chairman should be appointed from Sindh, demands Nisar Khuhro

LARKANA: The Adviser to the Chief Minister Sindh on Works and Services and President Pakistan People’s Party, Sindh, Nisar Ahmad Khuhro, has said the IRSA has claimed that 45,000 cusecs water was being lost from downstream of the Indus River and it was the narrative of General Pervez Musharraf.

While addressing a huge sit-in against water shortage and load shedding  in Larkana he said on the contrary, at present, the flow of water in downstream of the Indus River was only 200 cusecs and there was 10,000 cusecs of water in Kotri upstream. “We will not allow anyone to destroy Sindh’s agriculture and protests for water supply will continue from June 3 to June 15”.

Khuhro said the purpose of holding a press conference at the belly of the river was to show to the world that IRSA’s claim of wasting 45,000 cusecs water was not true as the river’s belly at downstream was dry. He said the IRSA should at least provide water to Sindh according to the 1991 accord to allow Sindh to improve the provision of water to agriculture sector. Nisar Khuhro claimed that half of the water goes from Taunsa to Guddu and due to that Sindh could not get its full share, saying water was our life and running of Sindh’s financial cycle depends on the provision of sufficient water to the agriculture sector. He said the federal government had promised to provide five million houses and 10 million jobs and many other facilities, but the people of Sindh have been asking them to provide water only.
