ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan has appealed overseas pakistanis specially to contribute for construction of dams in Pakistan.
In a short message to the nation, PM Khan asked Pakistanis and overseas Pakistanis to contribute as much as possible quoting at least one thousand dollars in the Dam funds created by Chief Justice of Pakistan.
PM Khan said Pakistan has only 30 days water storage capacity which is alarming whereas India has 190 days capacity. We have to build this dam by ourselves, nobody will give us loans for it and we know we can do it.
He said Prime Minister’s fund for dam would be now part of Chief Justice’s fund and both will be merged.
Imran Khan lauded the Chief Justice for taking initiative for construction of dams which was primary responsibility of the politicians. The Prime Minister said Pakistan could face drought like conditions by 2025 if dams are not constructed now.
