Kalabagh Dam vital for economic stability: Dr AQ Khan

Father of Pakistan’s nuclear programme and chief of Tehrik-e-Tahafuz Pakistan Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan on Saturday said that construction of Kalabagh Dam is necessary for strengthening the economy of the country.
Talking to a private TV channel, Dr AQ Khan said construction of Kalabagh Dam was vital for addressing all challenges facing the country.
He said the country would get rid from IMF and stand on its own feet if the Kalabagh Dam was built.
The renowned nuclear scientist said the governments of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa should not oppose to construction of the dam which would make the two provinces more prosperous.
Dr AQ Khan also expressed dissatisfaction over Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s response, saying that those condemning the dam are unaware of its importance.
He said construction of dams including Kalabagh Dam have become imperative at this critical juncture when the country is facing acute shortage of electricity.
In response to a question, he said elections were very important to bring political change in the country. The process will sweep away corrupt elements.

    You are right Sir.

    Instead of dragging yourself in the murky waters of Pakistani Politics you must take up projects of scientific and mathematical nature which serve Pakistan's best interest, which have been hitherto neglected and strongly advocate for them. That will be a big service to this nation and country.

    May Allah Subahan o tala help you. Ameen

    Why is he in politics? This is proposperous. He should be teaching physics or mathematics at the University instead of jumping in politics. If he really wants to do something for Pakistan, humble advice prof. A.Q. Khan, returned back to academia and teaching physics or mathematics.

    I think its worth talking about. Why not keep emotions out of it and sit down and discuss the pros and con to this festering issue. I can bet most of the people who oppose thie construction of this dam do so on for other reasons than then the non- feasibility of the project.

    I am not sure about Kalabagh Dam but I am pretty sure this person is not good for Pakistan.

    The recent Sindh assembly session had also raised the issue of controversial Kala Bagh dam project. After a long debate it was concluded that this project poses threats to national unity and four resolutions were passed against the construction of this dam. Political parties condemned the decision of federal government and other political parties who were in favour of this project in past.
