Will Stop Flow of India’s Share of Water to Pakistan, Says Nitin Gadkari

Will Stop Flow of India’s Share of Water to Pakistan, Says Nitin Gadkari

New Delhi: A week after the Pulwama terror attack,  Union minister Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday that the government has decided to "stop" the flow of India’s share of water to Pakistan from rivers under the Indus Water Treaty,

The move comes amid escalating Indo-Pak tension over the Pulwama terror strike. An official later termed it as not a "new decision" and the minister was "simply reiterating" what he has always said.

There were calls to stop flow of India's share of Indus water to Pakistan post Uri terror attack in 2016 as well.

As per the 1960  Indus Water Treaty, the waters of the western river -the Indus, Jhelum, and Chenab - was given to Pakistan and those of the eastern rivers - the Ravi, Beas, and Sutlej - to India.

Part of diplomatic offensive, India has already decided to revoke the Most Favoured Nation status to Pakistan.

It might take six years before dams as high as 100 will be made to block the water flow.
