    I thought this was an extremely interesting read considering all the BS we hear from India stealing Pakistani water ...

    With the amount of money Pakistan is spending on Defence Procurement and also on Debt Repayment, little is left for developmental activities. Taking into account the numerous files and pockets to be lined, it is not difficult to comprehend the situation in our Western Neighbour.

    For the politicians it is the easiest job to point the finger across the border, despite overwhelming facts that it is their own mismanagement that is causing the water problems. In fact other states have been complaining for years that Punjab takes the lion's share of water, which is mostly wasted.
