India to ‘stop’ flow of its share of water to Pak
NEW DELHI: India has decided to “stop” the flow of its share of water to Pakistan from rivers under the Indus Water Treaty, Union minister Nitin Gadkari said Thursday, in comments that came over a week after the ghastly Pulwama terror attack killing 40 CRPF personnel.
An official later clarified that it was not a “new decision” and that the Water Resources minister was “simply reiterating” what he has always said. “Under the leadership of Hon’ble PM Sri @narendramodi ji, Our Govt. has decided to stop our share of water which used to flow to Pakistan. We will divert water from Eastern rivers and supply it to our people in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab,” Gadkari tweeted. (PTI)
