Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, on Thursday, cautioned that if Pakistan continues to support terrorists, India will have no option but to stop water from flowing to the neighbouring country from the three rivers.
“Water is going to Pakistan from 3 rivers, we don't want to stop that. But the basis of the water treaty between India & Pakistan were peaceful relations and friendship which have completely vanished. So we are not bound to follow this treaty,” ANI quoted Union Minister Nitin Gadkari as saying.
The minister said that “Pakistan is continuously supporting terrorists”.
“Pakistan is continuously supporting terrorists. If Pakistan doesn't stop terrorism, we won't have any other option but to stop river water to Pakistan. So India has started internally studying it. That water will go to Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan,” Nitin Gadkari added.
It is pertinent to mention here that since the Modi government has come to power, it is continuously acting tough on Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.
