Islamabad: The Indus River System Authority (IRSA) has decided to provide huge amount of water to the Sindh province, media sources reported.
IRSA’s administration has decided to stop the flow of water to Punjnad canal, Trimmu canal and Tepu canal in order to provide extra forty-five thousand cubic water to Sindh province.
The step was being taken as the water level of Tarbela Dam reached the dead-level which would create the lack of water in the province.
On March 21, CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah was burst out on the federal over water crisis and declared it responsible for the whole situation.
While talking to media persons he said that number of letters were written to the federal Ministry for Water and Power which did not bother to respond even single. He added: “It’s the first time two huge water reservoirs are reaching their dead level.”
He said that due to the negligence of federal government, people of Sindh would have to bear serious crisis especially those who have to cultivate “Khareef” crops.
Shah warned government that the issue would be raised in the Council of Common Interests (CCI) and also demanded o give control of Indus River System Authority (IRSA) and Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) to Sindh and Balochistan.
