LAHORE- India had to pay the price after warning Pakistan as China stopped India’s water on Brahamputra River for a project.
According to Chinese media, China will build a dam in Tibet, which will produce electricity and will also be used for irrigation purpose
The project will cost $740 million.
By building the dam, provision of water to India as well as Bangladesh will be affected.
Earlier, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met top officials to review Indus Waters Treaty with Pakistan in response to September 18 attack in Occupied Kashmir’s Uri area, in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed.
There have been repeated calls in India that the BJP-led government should abrogate the pact to mount pressure on Pakistan in the aftermath of Uri attack.
Under the treaty, which was signed by Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Pakistan president Ayub Khan in September 1960, water of six river including Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum were to be shared between the two countries but Pakistan has been complaining of not receiving enough water.
According to experts, if India withdraws from an international pact, it’s a violation of a legal treaty, which will invite international condemnation.
