LAHORE: Sunni Ittehad Council Chairman, Shahibzada Fazal Karim Said on Wednesday, that the Kalabagh Dam was vital for Pakistan’s survival, Geo News reported.
He said, the country was losing Rs. 132 billion annually, because no headway was made regarding the KBD.
Addressing the oath taking ceremony of the Sunni Youth Council in Lahore, Shahibzada Fazal Karim urged for Rs. 5 billion to be allocated for the Thar Coal project in the new budget, as the energy crisis was eating away the very vitality of the country. The energy sector should be given priority just as the defence sector, for resolving the crisis, he said.
Shahibzada said that the restoration of Nato supply would be tantamount to committing national suicide. Pakistan should not risk its own security for the stake of others, he said.
