Indus water treaty is a water sharing agreement between India and Pakistan for the distribution of water from the Indus water system. The 56-year-old Indus water treaty was signed in the year1960 between Indian Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru and Pakistani president Md Ayub Khan. And as per the treaty, India controls Beas, Ravi, and Sutlej, while Pakistan control Indus, Chenab, and Jhelum.
A few days back, India hinted at scrapping Indus water treaty. By ending this treaty India wants to mount pressure on Pakistan. Ending the treaty would highly affect Pakistan. It could result in a massive loss for Pakistan because Indus water Treaty is a lifeline for Pakistan. Pakistan would become dry, resulting in drought and heavy losses. It would also affect Pakistan’s economy because Pakistan’s economy is heavily dependent on agriculture and most part of the Pakistan’s agriculture is dependent on Indus water river.
After MEA spokesperson Vikas Swaroop’s statement which hinted at Revoking the treaty, PM Modi chaired the meeting to review Indus Water Treaty.
Getting tough on Pakistan at the meeting, Pm Modi has clearly stated: “Blood and water cannot flow together”.
The thought of revoking Indus water treating is a strong signal to Pakistan to stop sponsoring terror.
This news has sent Pakistan into a tizzy. Pakistan is scared of death. And here is the video of what has happened in the Pakistan Parliament after this news broke out in India. See how Sartaj Aziz, who is the adviser of the Pakistani PM on foreign affairs and security was bewildered while giving the speech in the Parliament. If just the thought of ending the treaty can scare Pakistan, imagine what damage it could do if the treaty is actually revoked.
