Earlier the Pakistani public has launched a public campaign for the demand of Dams and Water Reservoirs in Pakistan. Vote for Dam, and We Need Dam hashtags were getting viral over the social media platforms. Pakistanis on the social media in this campaign have demanded that we don’t need carpet roads, not flyover, metro buses, and nor orange line train but only dams to secure the future of Pakistan. If the new dams in the country are not constructed then, Pakistan will take a dip of water shortage in the next few years.
Water shortage and then continuous construction of dams on Pakistani rivers is indeed an alarming situation for Pakistan that could rise to many issues in upcoming five years. Further, it has been revealed that Afghanistan is also planning to build on Pakistani rivers coming from its land. This triplet effect will make Pakistani land barren.
Due to nuclear power, the strategy for war has been shifted from nuke war to making Pakistan barren. This war will be on water shortage. On one side due to climate change, there is a shortage of water, and on the other hand, the Pakistani government not seems interesting in building new dams and reservoirs.
