In an interview to Waqar Zaka on-board the flight to U.K, CJP stated:
The construction of the Dam has become extremely important for Pakistan. There is no objection on it that in the upcoming years Pakistan will be facing extreme water shortage. With growing population, our main resource that is water is SHRINKING. And if we didn’t manage this crisis which requires the effort of the whole nation, then it will become really hard for survival.
