Modi is hinting at withdrawing India's support from Indus water treaty, a much needed step!



Though one thing bothers me a lot here is how will China react to this, being an ally of Pakistan and Brahmaputra coming from China, maybe India should rethink its options here?

This treaty allows India to use limited amounts of water from Indus, Jhelum and Chenab and full use of water from Sutlej, Beas and Ravi for agriculture, power generation and transport thus helping the energy and water starved India. Using this treaty India can threaten Pakistan to mend its ways in issues of terrorism because without water and irrigation facilities the lands of Pakistan would become infertile. This treaty has stood through wars between India and Pakistan. This treaty stands as an example of how both countries can live peacefully and cooperate in various other sectors also.

The treaty is also called unjust by many sections who opine that it deprives Jammu and Kashmir of its rivers. China, which is a source of indus and Sutlej is not a party to the agreement bringing in elements of uncertainty.

Most importantly, Pakistan's disruptive attitude on india's legitimate right such as kishanganga dam on neelam river etc and it's display irresponsibility have been major irritants of the treaty. In the light of recent bilateral tensions, India should at the outset not violate the treaty as it being the lower riparian state in many other cases should not set a dangerous precedent. It should instead explore other alternatives such as diplomacy and dialogue to resolve them.

We must direct all our waters to the farmers. Pakistan Government must be responsible to supply water to their farmers! As it is they have not done any dams or embankments for a long long time. The reason for Pakistans punjabis prosperity lies with Indias water which must be taken back. Pakistan is deaf to peace talks, supporting Balochistan and killing Indus water treaty is the only option left

This treaty has been too much generous and it has not served its purpose. It is against the interest of states like Jammu and Kashmir where the water of Indus, Jhelum and chenab can only be utilised for non-consumptive purposes. India gets less than 20% of the water under the treaty where as Pakistan gets 80% of the water. With the growing population and increasing interstate water dispute (between Punjab and Haryana) Indus treaty makes it difficult for India to use the water. Pakistan insists on rights without responsibilities. In fact many Indian projects like Kishanganga, Baglihar etc are delayed due to Pakistan.

No! this treaty provides an amicable arrangement for sharing cross border river water between two countries. Thereby, avoiding situation of conflict between two nations. The two nations are already rivals since its birth and hence treaty reduces chances of worsening relations between two countries due to water issue. It is serving as model for international cooperation. India can demand similar treatment from China citing example of this treaty on Brahmaputra and its tributary.
