IWT: Stopping water to Pak no solution; need to utilise existing share, says Jitendra

IWT: Stopping water to Pak no solution; need to utilise existing share, says Jitendra

New Delhi, Jun 16 (UNI) Amidst demands from some quarters to abrogate the Indus Water Treaty with Pakistan in the wake of escalating tension, Union Minister of State in the PMO Dr Jitendra Singh today disapproved the option, saying the more important issue was how to utilise the water which India was entitled to under the treaty. 'The question here is not to stop water, but how to utilise it,' Dr Sharma said here while speaking at a seminar at which previous speakers Maj Gen G D Bakshi and Prof Madhav Das Nalapat described the Treaty as very much against the national interest and called for its abrogation. Dr Singh said 'most of the Indus water was still going to Pakistan so instead of going into an aggressive mode, things should be in place at our side to make use of the water.' Similar views were also expressed by former Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Secretary Shashi Shekhar, who said India was pathetic in not making use of even the water that has been allocated to it, and the reason for that is there was no infrastructure in place to store the water even if it was stopped from flowing to Pakistan. The Seminar on the need of continuing the Treaty was organised by the Global Counter Terrorism Council. Dr Jitendra Singh, who was the chief guest at the seminar, attacked all the decisions regarding Kashmir and Pakistan taken by the Nehru and the successive Congress government. He said that 'happenings following those decisions vindicated our stand, our criticism that based on sound logic.' He also said partition and the Kashmir problem was the result of the political interest of a small group of people, as the creation of Bangladesh and the unrest in Balochistan and other parts of Pakistan had proved the failure of the ‘’two-nation theory.’’ He said today’s Kashmiri youth was ready to join the national mainstream as he was wise enough to see where their future lay, and it were only a handful of people who had a vested interest in promoting anti-India feeling.
