Long lasting solution


Hashim Abro has called for long lasting solution to the incessant problem ravaging the regions in Sindh. It has to be understood that all the rivers flow down to Sindh. Suitably placed storage reservoirs can go a long way in moderating the recurring flood havoc in Sindh. There are no sites for new dams in Pakistan on the Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi and Sutlej rivers. Floods in Swat river can be moderated with Munda dam. Those in Haro river with Akhori dam. But the floods in Kabul, Chitral and Soan rivers cannot be moderated except by a dam at the Kalabagh site. These are the long lasting solutions which a learned writer like Hashmim Abro should be advocating.
