India to block 1m acre-feet water supply to Pakistan
According to Indian media, Indian politicians have decided to block and use 1.5 million acre-feet water of river Ravi flowing into Pakistan.
It was decided in a meeting chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh that the water flowing into Pakistan will be equally shared by Jammu and Kashmir and Indian Punjab.
India plans to build dams on the border of Jammu and Punjab and through barrages and canals the water will be diverted to India, which will be used for agriculture instead.
Politicians decided to share burden of Jammu and Kashmir by constructing barrage and remaining part of Ranjit Sagar dam project.
Moreover, India also plans to generate about 180 Megawatts power.
