Quetta [Pakistan], July 29 (ANI): Amid the ongoing water crisis in Pakistan, former Chief Minister of Balochistan Jan Muhammad Jamali has accused the Sindh government of unfair water distribution to the province and called upon the Indus River System Authority (IRSA) to play its role in ensuring proper share.

"Sindh government's stubbornness regarding not giving proper share of water to the Khirthar Canal from the river Indus in Balochistan is an economic murder of Balochistan farmers and landlords," he said during a meeting with Khirthar Canal executive engineers Zafar Ali, Karim Bakhsh, Abid Ali Sial at Kot Noorpur Jamali, reported The Express Tribune.

Jamali also demanded of the IRSA to play its role in resolving the water issue in a manner that the Sindh government fairly distributes water to Balochistan.

"Sindh's action to unnecessarily provide water to Warah Canal at this time is tantamount to aggression against Balochistan," he said.

He was of the view that drinking water should be provided to the people by playing an effective role in providing water to the dunes in Khirthar Canal.

"The problems of the people should be solved as much as possible. Economic murder of the people will not be tolerated under any circumstances," Jamali said.

The MPA alleged that the (Sindh) government has diverted water to the Khirthar Canal. "I strongly condemn such an action," he added.

In June, Balochistan Governor Amanullah Khan Yasinzai had pointed out that the groundwater level in the province has dropped to alarming levels, especially in Quetta.

Experts had also warned that famine-like situations may arise in Pakistan due to the scarcity of water across the country if the issue is not resolved on time. (ANI)

A ‘European Silk Road’

In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
