    Indians always talk about water weapon. Indian groundwater is near empty in many parts of country. Taps will run dry again soon.

    25 times more energy required for desalination and with that, also comes the problem of brine. Desalination plants are a bonus to existing water supply and are in no way a replacement. The cost is too high.

    I understand, that is why we use solar fields for energy. What about reverse osmosis?

    As you know Saudi is using desalination, we should look into it too.

    The returns are too low, with the existing technology, the ratio of fresh water to feed water is around 10-15% at best and the added repair and replacement costs make it unviable for large scale operations.

    Saudi Arabia is quite successful - They're running 23 plants.

    Saudi's have Petro-Dollors to fund it. We don't. First step is to harness rivers by making dams...we haven't started there yet even after 70 years.....Desalination is a distant option

    Err no. Tear the country into 2 halves. Force the largest surrender of an army since the second world war. Create another country from the majority that desired to side with India with its own Constitution leaders laws Parliament army etc.
    And to ensure over the 50 years the broken bankrupt exploited enslaved half rose to be the BETTER half in every human indicator compared to the genocidal half left behind in its burning impotent hate

    Absolutely right. That is why India cannot afford to not utilise ALL the water that is its due according to the IWT. Thats what India is doing including the linking of all rivers to provide a sustainable water regime for this century and next

    I support imran khan in this initiative. I believe india will divert the water allowed under the treaty. He should tone down the rhetoric though as you have to deal with what you have. Cant chose your neighbors.

    Desalination is only for small amount of water. It is useless when used for agriculture or industry. Arabs only have plants for feeding its people, not for commercial or industrial usage.
