WASHINGTON – In a bid to normalize deteriorating relations between the countries, President Donald Trump of United States has agreed to provide funding and support for the Diamer-Bhasha Dam project, according to confidential sources. ‘Build that Dam’, he told Pakistan’s top diplomat at a recent meeting.
“I am willing to pay $199 billion for this project, as the future of humanity shall be affected by this mega-dam. It would be the best dam ever built in the history of this universe,” he proclaimed enthusiastically.
He mentioned his longtime interest in infrastructure projects and has only one precondition for his support: Change the name of the dam to “Trump Water Tower”.
To further develop the project and finalize the details, Donald Trump Junior and Ivanka Trump will be visiting Pakistan in a few months.
This won’t be the first time that major dams in Pakistan would be funded by foreign powers as Mangla and Tarbela Dam were also donated to Pakistan by Western countries.
Sources close to the Chief Justice Saqib Nisar have reported multiple fainting spells upon the arrival of this news. Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan has decided to boycott this project and would march on Islamabad as soon as their pay slips of Rs 1,000 each arrive
