India can’t stop Pakistan’s water: Zardari
JAFFARABAD: Former president of Pakistan and leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari said on Friday India could not stop Pakistan’s water as Islamabad had already found other channels to fulfill its requirements.
Addressing a ceremony in connection with Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s death anniversary, the former president spoke of water woes of the country and said : “People ask me where will water come from, and I tell them the water will come from Central Asia, and I will bring it”.
He said there would be wars over water in the coming days. We have already found others channels for water and Inshallah Balochistan would be the first to benefit from those channels.
Zardari said Pakistan People's party (PPP) had the responsibility to protect people of Balochistan under its umbrella.
He said Balochistan has bright future and "I love Balochistan as much as I love Pakistan itself" while advising Baloch people to keep themselves from being misused.
Talking about the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), he said said the project would benefit Pakistan wholly and would strengthen entire nation instead of certain parts and departments. He said China is a friendly neighbor and has been supportive.
