The Chief Justice of Pakistan on Friday vowed to not let anyone misappropriate the funds being collected for construction of dams to resolve the country’s water crisis.
Reiterating the need for building dams to overcome acute water shortage, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar in his remarks during a case hearing observed that the Supreme Court has appealed [to the public] to gather funds for immediate construction of Bhasha and Mohmand dams.
“We will not let anyone [misappropriate] these funds. The funds will be guarded. We will not allow the [commission] people to buy houses and cars from this money,” the chief justice remarked.
