Pak's delay in taking up Nimoo-Bazgo Hydropower Project issue may benefit India

Islamabad, Thu, 26 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 26(ANI): The delay by Pakistan's Indus Water Commission in approaching the International Court of Arbitration (ICA) over the construction of 45-megawatt Nimoo-Bazgo Hydropower Project may benefit India.


A senior Pakistani official told the Daily Times that the case would be taken up next month due to a delay in preparing the documents.


India has said that it would complete the controversial project by June 2013, but Pakistani authorities are continuously delaying the decision to challenge construction of the project.


A source said the commission had decided to maintain silence on the issue following an inquiry initiated against former Pakistan's water commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah for his alleged involvement in facilitating Indian authorities in the construction of the project.


The 57-metre-high Nimoo-Bazgo Hydroelectric Project is being developed in the Leh district on the Indus River and the 42-metre-high Chuttak Hydroelectric Project is also being completed on the Suru River in Kargil district, he added.


The said projects will reduce the flow of the Indus River, which is a lifeline of Pakistan.


A Pakistani delegation, which had earlier visited the site of the project had claimed that the concerned project negates the provisions of Indus Waters Treaty.


India has, however, rejected those objections. (ANI)
