    The Pakistani army is the anchor of stability in Pakistan. As a Chinese, I hope that the Pakistani army will become stronger and stronger, because the stronger Pakistan is, the stronger the China-Pakistan alliance will be.

    I sincerely hope that the Pakistani army and economy will become stronger and stronger.
    A strong military can protect the interests of the Pakistani people, and a strong Pakistani economy will provide material resources for the military and the state.

    Every year, flood relief and heavy rain in the rainy season, when it comes to large floods, it flows the villages of flooded villages, stormy waves swallowing houses including houses, every year, precious water causes a flood and Johnny vomiting is born after the loss of harmony. If water is a store in the dams, it can not only get energy, but it can be useful for our canal system
    Sadly, a ruler did not pay attention to the dams, and today we face a severe energy crisis. Even if small dams have been made, then the energy crisis has to be done. It is clear that the Kalabagh dam is hidden in the last one, the name of patriotism, and the non-enemy, who listens to themselves, on the same page, identify the origin of anything Yes, it is important to study the mindset of his opponents to know the truth of the Kalabagh dam, Those who are not exposed to their lives, but in the so-called thought of the coming generations, they have waist on making their lives uncontrollable, Black Bagh Dam is a solution and fact that it needs to be constructed temporary Excluding this permanent contribution can be found
    In the past, there were no more colony residents living in the inner areas, water was scarce, official water was available in the morning, afternoon and evening.
    At the time, the underground water level was more than thirty feet and water after the thirty feet excavation came out. As the time passed, a residential colony was formed, and water remained unstable, and now it is known that the use of daily water and lack of water is still used to be unhealthy. Home cleaning process continues till evening. On the other hand, heavy machines cause heavy waste of service stations, its pressure is so high that its use of unhealthy cannot be stopped at any time.

    Punjab is the granary of Pakistan and if it dries up due to Indian Dams on Jhelum and Chenab then the whole country will face very serious consequences.

    Climate change is already a reality. People will be forced to migrate and there are no places to go. Already the west is sending back refugees from Africa, Arab World and Afghanistan.

    It had been rightly predicted that the next wars will be over water. India has got us by the jugular vein and is squeezing the life out of the country.

    We should bomb the Indian Dams in Kashmir whenever there is an opportunity. Sliding Barrel Bombs were used by the British in WWII on German Dams successfully and Torpedoes can also be used. Dam experts can give inputs on vulnerable spots in Dams.

    If Pakistan is to become a middle income country in next decades or so they will HAVE to build kalabagg dam. The souther barren land in south of punjab and most of Balochistan cannot produce without this dam. Most of the poverty in Pakistan is in central Pakistan because of desert and semi desert conditions which can only be improved by a dam that holds 10 cubic meters of water. No politician will tell you the honest truth or potential of this project. This project alone gives 4500 MW of electricity, provides year round water to most poverty stricken part of that country and holds critical supply of water. Not to mention protect people and property from floods. Now find reasons why you can't do it...

    Because the people of Pakistan have no concept of paying for water. Install water meters on all consumers of water ( including agricultural users ) and crisis will be over. use the funds to fix the infrastructure of water , canals dams etc.

    We need a new Water conservation policy.

    Government must take these steps to implement this policy.

    1. Media (Print media, TV/Radio, Social media) campaign to conserve water.
    2. New technology for gray and black water treatment plant.
    3. Work on Water reservoirs and rain harvesting system.
    4. More than half of the irrigation water is wasted due to poorly managed irrigation system and inadequate water infrastructure.
    5. Money for Bhasha dam should collected and building should start soon.
    6. We also need small water storage dams countrywide on a fast track basis. We have a potential to build 800 small dams/water reservoirs. There is a immediate need to build 100 dams in Punjab, 60 in Sindh, 40 in KPK and 30 in Balochistan.
    7. We can build underground and above ground water reservoirs, reservoirs with floating wetlands can be introduce to prevent water evaporations. Qanat system or canal system can be used to distribute water to remote areas
    8. For the coastal areas in Sindh and Balochistan, Government need to introduce Newest desalination technology.
    9. Karachi needs a mega desalination plant. Also, since Zardari is going to build a new city zulfiqarab in Sindh coastal area, there should also be a desalination plant.
