Pakistanis capable of constructing dams with own resources: CJP


Pakistanis are capable of constructing dams with their own resources, said Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday.
While having an informal conversation with an NGO delegation, Justice Nisar said overseas Pakistanis were willing to send money for the construction of Diamer-Bhasha dam.
“We have [high] expectations from overseas Pakistanis who have always helped Pakistan in times of need,” the CJP said. “We will try to protect their interests.”
About his decision to ask the public for funds to construct the Diamer-Bhasha dam, the chief justice said the country has given a lot to its people and it was now time for the public to return.
“The step that Supreme Court took has become the notion of entire public.”
Besides the construction of dam, Justice Nisar stressed on payment of debts. “History will not forgive us if loans of Pakistan are not paid back.”
Earlier, the CJP was having an informal conversation with journalists at Supreme Court Lahore Registry, during which he appreciated Prime Minister Imran Khan’s request to overseas Pakistanis for assistance in overcoming water crisis.—INP
