LAHORE, Sept 6 The Pakistan Muttahida Kissan Mahaz staged a demonstration at Wagah border on the Defence of Pakistan Day on Sunday against the Indian water aggression.
A large number of farmers, students, businessmen and civil society members from Lahore, Multan, Vehari and Rawalpindi participated in the demonstration.
They were carrying banners and placards on which they had written slogans against diversion of Pakistani rivers by India. Speaking on the occasion, Mahaz president Ayub Mayo said India had closed Ravi and Beas rivers soon after independence.
He said India was now trying to divert the flow of remaining three rivers Indus, Chenab and Jhelum by building a number of dams in the Occupied Kashmir.
Mr Mayo said that canals in Pakistan would dry up and agricultural economy would be destroyed if India was not stopped from building dams on these three rivers.
He said the Mahaz would organise demonstrations against Indian water aggression in Islamabad and opposite the UN headquarters in New York, outside the House of Lords in London and opposite the European Union office in Brussels after the Edul Fitr.
