‘Sindh Needs Water’ becomes Twitter top trend; due water share for Sindh demanded

KARACHI: Due to severe water shortage in Sindh, #SindhNeedsWater has become a top trend in Pakistan. Protesting against artificial shortage of water in Sindh occurred due to undue cutting of water share by IRSA , political and social activist from across Sindh took part in the protest trend and kept sharing the statistics of severe water shortage and crop damage in Sindh. Earlier Provincial Minister for Irrigation Jam Khan Shoro had said that 18 MAF water had been released from Panjnad to Chashma Jhelum Link Canal for the last 18 years while only 2 MAF released in Indus River. Shoro condemned the IRSA’s decision of reduction in Sindh water share and  said that IRSA had made reduction of 133,000 cusecs in Sindh’s water share which was a grave injustice. He said Sindh was not being given water share as per the 1991 water accord which resulted in acute water shortage in the province and Kharif crops are being sown in August instead of May. Ali Haider Shah, President PYO Hyderabad in his statement condemned the water shortage and demanded that Sindh should be given its due water share as per 1991 water accord.
