Punish elements helping India to construct disputed water reservoirs: JI leader
Lahore, July 23 (ANI): Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has appealed to Pakistan Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to take suo motu notice and set up a judicial commission to identify elements in Pakistan that are assisting India in the construction of disputed water reservoirs.
In a statement, Baloch said Indian water aggression has caused immense harm to Pakistan, resulting in reduction of river water availability.
The Nation further quoted Baloch, as saying that the issue should be moved before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to check New Delhi's plans to destroy the agriculture and economy of Pakistan.
"The Pakistan government had earlier decided to take up the matter before the International Court of Justice but now the idea had been dropped. The construction of the latest hydro project was a clear violation of the Indus River Water Treaty but Pakistani authorities were acting as silent spectators," Baloch alleged.
He said there were 'hidden reasons' for not taking up the matter before the International Court of Justice.
"The general impression is that some former technocrats in the Indus Water Commission, Foreign Ministry, and Water and Power Ministry had secretly supported India in this regard," he alleged. (ANI)
