Diamer Bhasha Dam fund witnesses a surge

ISLAMABAD – Diamer Bhasha and Mohamand Dams Fund has witnessed a new surge.

Dam funds have crossed Rs7.076 billion as per stats available on Supreme Court of Pakistan’s website till October 29, 2018. ------------------------------


Following a report predicting severe water shortages in the country by 2025, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar had initiated a crowd-funding drive for construction of mega-dams to counter growing water crisis in the country.

By contributing Rs1 million, CJP became the first donor. Many others including Pakistan Army, showbiz fraternity and sports personalities followed the much-appreciated suit.

Various branches of the military have donated a whopping $7.3m to the noble cause. COAS presented the letter to CJP which reads, “It gives me (COAS) immense pleasure to share with you (chief justice) that the Supreme Court’s decision regarding construction of Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams has been well received by Pak Army.”
