Sind being deprived of its due water share: Senator Sherry Rehman

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) parliamentary leader Senator Sherry Rehman has said that Sind is being deprived of its due water share. In his recent Twitter message she has said that after reopening the Taunsa-Panjnad Link Canal despite a vote-based (3-1) decision against its opening, IRSA has now cut Sindh’s due share of water by a massive 50% – clear violation of the Water Apportionment Act 1991. Looming water crisis in Sindh. She has further said that Sindh is already facing its worst water crisis in 60 years. Climate Change is further intensifying droughts & heatwaves across the province. Not only is the economy at stake but also the lives  and livelihoods of countless farmers across Sindh. The PPP rejects this move.
