    India blocks three rivers flowing from its territory into Pakistan: report

    [​IMG]


    India has blocked water flow from the rivers Sutlej, Beas and Ravi into Pakistan, while another 50,000 cusecs of water of river Chenab has also been cut short, a report in a local media outfit said on Monday.

    The report said that as the result of this current blockage, water has not been discharged in all the 90 canals erupting from the blocked rivers. This is enough proof of the fact that India is quietly violating 1960 Indus Waters Treaty (IWT), the report added.

    According to the IWT, India was bound to allow the flow of 50,000 cusecs water of river Chenab into Pakistan—however, the quantity of water at present is merely 5,461 cusecs.

    India has built several dams on rivers Sutlej, Beas and Ravi, which has consequently resulted in the elimination of thousands of species of sea animals. Upper Chenab Canal needs at least 18,000 cusecs of water whereas India has released a mere 4,182 cusec. Analysts have warned of an alarming increase in the prices of agriculture products as farmers are using tube wells to acquire water for their fields.

    According to the IWT, Pakistan has unrestricted access to the three rivers, i.e. Jhelum, Chenab and the Indus. For its part, India was allocated unrestricted access to the three eastern rivers, i.e. Ravi, Sutlej and Beas. India’s Modi has threatened on multiple occasions to do away with the treaty altogether.

    Sounds legit.

    There politicians want to create an aura of a conflict and such news is helpful in building up the rhetoric in India.

    It would be like fairy tale. Rivers flowing in reverse, climbing mountains, waterfalls becoming waterise..... would be awesome to look at.

    The article clearly says

    India has unrestricted access to Ravi, Sutlej & Beas
    Pakistan has unrestricted access to Jhelum, Chenab & Indus

    and it also says India has built dams on the rivers allocated to her. So, what is the fuss all about when we are using our rightful share

    Did you think dams can be built overnight?

    No need to whin and cry. Only Pakistani incompetant politicians are the reason of anything that goes against Pakistani interests.

    Pakistan have to learn to pursue it's survival interests aggressively. Indus originates from China and passes only 3%in IOK, it won't be so hard to divert that 3% water.

    Time to renegotiate the water treaty to actual international standards which China follows :tup:

    It should be fair both ways.

    Perfect solution... even airlift could be a immediate option as only 30% of Indus water actually come from China rest all is added from tributaries originating from India.

    It just says they're taking their rivers, nothing on Pakistan's rivers.
