ndia is hatching conspiracies against the KalaBagh Dam and constructing unjustified dams on Pakistan;s Rivers: Moonis Elahi



LAHORE: Leader of the Pakistan Muslim League Chaudhry Moonis Elahi has said that the only way to achieve prosperity and national progress lies in the early construction of the Kalabagh dam, India is hatching conspiracies against the Kalabagh dam and constructing ‘unjustified dams’ on Pakistan’s rivers.


Moonis Elahi said unemployment and uncertainty are plaguing young Pakistanis while youth-friendly policies were pushed forward during his party’s tenure. 

Moonis Elahi added that 40 million acre feet of water was flowing into the sea while Pakistan can produce 50,000 megawatt electricity, priced at Rs2.5 per unit only. He said such use of resources could potentially save US$10 billion annually.



With reference to the PML-N, Moonis Elahi said that distributing laptops and loans to the youth on interest did not provide relief – the real relief lay in the provision of cheap electricity.

Ch. Moonis Elahi invited the people of Sindh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan to discuss the issue of the Kalabagh dam in order to resolve any uncertainties.
