Water share from Thein Dam
J&K wakes up from deep slumber over power and water sharing with Punjab

Jammu and Kashmir government raising the issue of non-implementation of Thein Dam Project Agreement by the Punjab government amounts to crying hoarse after the show is over. Moreover, it appears that the J&K has woken up from a deep slumber over the issue after a gap of over 30 years when the agreement was signed between the two states on the construction of Thein Dam and sharing of power, water and resultant revenue from the project. J&K’s contention that it has suffered losses due to non-implementation of the agreement by Punjab does not hold enough water in view of the fact that these issues needed to be settled in a phased manner between the two states when the project was under construction. The land for the project has been handed over to Punjab for which part of the compensation has been paid to the extent of Rs 20 crore more than 25 years back. The rest of the amount of Rs 80 crore has been pending for the past many years but nobody from J&K claimed it in the past. Apart from this J&K has blamed Punjab for not sharing power generation from the project besides sharing of water for which J&K built Ravi Tawi Irrigation Complex for providing irrigation facilities to vast tracts of Kandi belt. The question arises why these issues have not been raised by the state government during the past two decades when the project was being executed. It appears that either the state government was not bothered about the outcome of the projects till date or none from J&K object to scrapping of the agreements by the Punjab government through a legislation way back in 2004. It appears that J&K’s former minister incharge of concerned deparments, who had been making a noise on these issues, had been sleeping all these years despite the fact that he has been a member of the cabinet since 2002 continuously, has been in deep slumber all these years. Instead of taking up the issue with Punjab and seeking its resolution, the minister is all out crying hoarse on this issue to show the people that he cares for them without bothering to check up how much loss the state has suffered.
