The National Assembly has approved a resolution calling for construction of new dams in the country.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi while speaking on floor of the House said the country is facing a major crisis of water and energy shortages.
He said Pakistan’s future is linked to construction dams.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Khawaja Asif supported the construction of Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams, adding collecting funds for the construction of dams is a positive step.
He said the water policy which was signed by all four provinces in April 2018 included the construction of Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams.
