Big demo against construction of dams over Indus River

May 27, 2020

LARKANA:The members of Youth Action Committee (YAC) held a protest demonstration at Jinnah Bagh here on Wednesday against the construction of dams over Indus River.

The protesters were holding placards in their hands and shouting slogans in favor of their justified demand. They also observed a token hunger strike for some time. They included YAC Chairperson Sindhu Nawaz Ghanghro, Suhail Bhutto, Sheeraz Chandio, Faraz Odho, Ruk Sindhi, Ashraf Kalhoro and others.

While talking to media persons, they said that constructing dams over Indus River was not only against international laws and the constitution of Pakistan but also against Islamic laws. They said Sindhi people had also not only rejected such dams in the past but had also condemned such acts in the strongest possible words.

They said they still harshly condemned the building of dams over Indus River, hence such projects were not acceptable to people of Sindh at all. They further said that about 11 canals had been made out of Indus River between 1839 to 1919 without consent of the people of Sindh due to which acute water scarcity was constantly faced in the Indus River.

“If dams are constructed, then once mighty Indus River will become dry which will ruin life in Sindh province. We once again entirely reject the construction of Bhasha and other dams over River Indus.”

They warned that they will launch a massive struggle against such Sindh-enemy projects across the province. They also announced to hold the next protest in Sukkur.
