The choice to redirect the flow of the Indus River is a crucial measure aimed at water conservation and storage
In Islamabad, a decision has been made to divert the Indus River on November 30 in order to initiate the Diamer Bhasha Dam project. Following the diversion for construction purposes, the river will be reinstated to its original course.
Critical information has surfaced regarding the cipher case involving Imran Khan. Investigations conducted by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) indicate that the cipher was not entirely declassified. According to reports, journalist Ansar Abbasi stated that the FIA investigation disclosed the cipher’s non-declassification, and discussions about declassification occurred subsequent to its broadcasting.
Abbasi mentioned that the initial PTI cabinet meeting discussing the proposal for cipher declassification took place on March 30 last year.
A report from a private TV channel highlighted the significance of diverting the Indus River as a crucial aspect of the construction project. Upon completion, the Diamer Bhasha Dam will have a capacity to store 8.1 million acre-feet of water. This water reservoir will facilitate irrigation across an area of 1.23 million acres. Moreover, the dam is anticipated to generate 4,500 megawatts of cost-effective electricity. Additionally, an allocation of Rs 78.5 billion is earmarked for the rehabilitation of those affected by the Diamer Bhasha Dam project.
The worldwide geography of rivers is remarkably diverse and intriguing. While most rivers flow towards the sea and merge with it, the Indus River, originating from the northernmost part of Pakistan, eventually reaches the Arabian Sea after an extensive journey.
The Indus River, stretching across the entire length of Pakistan from north to south, holds significant importance. It serves not just as a conventional water source but also embodies a pivotal role in Pakistan’s history, reflecting its civilization, culture, and diverse indigenous heritage. The river stands as a symbol and identity of Pakistan.
