ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that by not building dams in country present and previous governments have left the people at the mercy of floods every year.

While speaking to media, he said that country can be steered out of the energy crisis if Kalabagh Dam is constructed. But all the political parties have ignored the dam to serve their own interests. He said the people are forced to face the consequences of the PPP and PML-N governments’ negligence.

Imran instructed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government to complete the flood prevention plan and to improve the mechanism for distribution of relief supplies. He added that the KP government should prepare a plan to deal with the flood situation in Chitral and possible flood situation that could develop in other areas as well. He also directed the provincial government to impose emergency in Chitral over flood situation.

Meanwhile, the PTI chairman in a statement instructed KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and provincial ministers to visit the flood affected areas forthwith and extend all possible help to affectees. He further directed the provincial government to provide basic amenities to the flood affectees immediately.

He stated that the estimate of loss caused by flash flood should be worked out and all possible assistance be provided to the people entrapped in flood-hit areas. He added that the federal government should extend cooperation to the KP government in dealing with the prevailing flood situation in Chitral.

The Kalabagh dam is essential for cheap electricity generation, cultivation of thousands of acres of land, food and water security. Pakistanis please join hands to pursue this project.

PMLN always wanted to build Kala Bagh Dam but KPK and Sindh assembly passed resolution against it. First thing Khattak did was after becoming CM was to say no to Kalabagh Dam. I don't know who IK is telling than Kalabagh is important?

PESHAWAR, June 7: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Friday said neither his government would favour the construction of Kalabagh dam nor would it change the new name of the province.
Mr Khattak told reporters here that his government would fully utilise the hydel power generation potential of the province to overcome shortage of electricity.
He said foreign investors would be invited to the province for the purpose and the government would provide them with complete security.
The chief minister said the deteriorating law and order situation was the main impediment in the way of progress of the province. We will work day and night to restore peace in the province, he said.
About the formation of the provincial cabinet, Mr Khattak said names of the ministers and portfolios would be finalised very soon and that there would be adequate share of women in the cabinet.
He said revolutionary changes would be made in the educational system, while effective and result-oriented measures would be taken on war footing for the revival of economy and elimination of corruption.
The chief minister said in the May 11 elections, the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had made a prudent and wise decision and not an emotional one by voting for the country, while the people of other provinces had voted for own provinces.
The people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had voted for change in the existing system of injustice, exploitation and class difference, and the present government will replace it with a new, the best one in line with the peoples expectations, he told reporters here.
Mr Khattak said to bring about the change in the province, he would not follow others and rather he would set examples for others to follow.
He elaborated on his agenda of change, good governance, reforms in the existing system of public service delivery and other priorities and said the people of the province would notice a positive and obvious change within a couple of weeks.
When asked about Nato supply and the US drone attacks, the chief minister said the provincial government would follow the national foreign policy on the two issues. He said the provincial government would extend full support to the federal government in formulating an effective policy to resolve the two issues and make a policy to ensure peace in the province.
Mr Khattak said his government would leave no stone unturned to come up to the peoples expectations by bringing about the real change and would deliver much more than what the people had expected of it.

This is a matter of national interest, which affects the whole of Pakistan, no matter which end of the political spectrum we belong to or what political views we hold, we should pursue this project in a non partisan way.

I would say all political parties need to work together on this core issue.

Where its written that PML N is supporting the building of Kalabagh Dam. In last 35 years of their rule when they have voiced in favor of KBD. The satatement of Khattak was in response to the ANP propaganda after elections that PTI will change the name and will start voicing for the dam. The dam should be constructed but after consciences. All the political parties should be taken in confidence. The people are suffering every years and politicians are running their shops on this issues. KBD is must to safe millions of people living in Indus Delta areas after Kalabagh from Mianwali to Hyderabad.

There should be talks among the provinces on this and other such dams. We people will always be on the mercy of rulers and will never know if its good or bad for the region but it is only the rulers who will know if its good or bad. So whatever they do i hope they think of the nation's interests..

Surely you are not in a right frame of mind.
1. Kalabagh dam is a national project, requiring national consensus. KPK govt cannot simply pass a resolution and begin construction. They neither have the funds, nor the mandate.
2. Bhasha dam, which is approved and under process, itself has been hit with funding delays....whereas you are talking about 'no shortage of investors ' for Kalabagh.

There is a water distribution formula in place which is not editable without national consensus. Kalabagh dam is the need of the hour, but Sindh and Baluchistan need a change in govt for that to happen.

It was ANP (Anti PAkistan Party) and Zardari who was against Kalabagh dam.

You need to change processor in your mind as it comes to wrong conclusions
Point was that KP govt to make resolution and Federal Govt can re-start the process ..
