Kalabagh Dam not been given up: CJP

LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar said Kalabagh Dam had not been given up.

Addressing a ceremony organised by Akhuwat Foundation here, he said if a consensus was reached by the nation then Kalabagh Dam would also be constructed after Diamer Basha and Mohmand dams. Kalabagh Dam guarantees our survival, he added.

He said even little children were donating for this purpose, adding the Army chief gave a donation of more than one billion rupees.

The CJP said a group of transgenders yesterday donated Rs 0.1 million and he would like to add Rs 0.1 million more to it as an encouragement for their spirit, so this would make Rs0.2 million donation on their behalf.

"You all are protectors, you have to stand guard so that the dam projects could be completed," the CJP added.
