‘We appreciate Prime Minister Imran Khan’s initiative for building of new dams to overcome the future water shortages in Pakistan as population was growing rapidly and our agriculture sector also needs water’, Alderman Mushtaq Lashari CBE UK Coordinator of UKPKCF told APP here Monday.
Pakistan, he said should immediately start building Diamer-Basha Dam and other dams to resolve the future water problems in the country.
Mushataq Lashari said that British-Pakistani diaspora was ready to extend every possible financial support to Prime Minister Imran Khan in his intiative for building the dams for the benefit of the country. In this connection a conference on third world solidarity and UKPKCF would be held at Pakistan Community Center Reading in which UKMP Matt Rodda, community leaders Local councillors and businessmen would attend.
Mushtaq Lashari said that Pakistan was an agricultural country and 70 percent of foods and exports were dependant on availability of water. It was therefore necessary that new dams and reservoirs should be built in Pakistan for securing the future of Pakistan and its people. People were also facing drinking water shortage and building of dams was necessary to overcome the issue.—APP
