PM will take final call on stopping water to Pakistan: Nitin Gadkari
Union minister Nitin Gadkari has said that the final decision to stop river water flowing to Pakistan will be taken by the prime minister. Gadkari said that by sporting terrorism, Pakistan had destroyed the spirit in which former PM Jawaharlal Nehru signed the Indus Waters Treaty. Earlier, Gadkari had talked about stopping the flow of water from India’s share to Pakistan to improve availability of water in Indian rivers. His comments came a week after the Pulwama terror attack that killed at least 40 jawans.
