New Delhi: Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has warned on Thursday that India would ‘choke’ the water supply to Pakistan in light of the Pulwama attack.
Gadkari’s admonition comes on the backdrop of the February 14 attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 CRPF personnel were martyred.
The Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had revoked the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status granted to Pakistan.
Gadkari made the statement at Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh. The Union Minister said that the water from three rivers entering Pakistan would be directed towards river Yamuna.
He further said that a project is being worked upon to connect the three rivers to further explore the possibilities of transportation in these water channels.
Gadkari said:”Three of our rivers have been flowing into Pakistan. So water which we rightfully owned was going into Pakistan. Now we are planning to create a project and divert the waters of these three rivers to the Yamuna.”
