Kalabagh-Dam-Issue-in-Pakistannews544sf54fSLAMABAD: The controversial Kalabagh dam is on the government’s list of ‘ready for construction’ projects.

This was disclosed when a list of under-construction, ready for construction and under planning hydel power projects was presented before the Senate by the Ministry of Water and Power on Friday.

The house was told in a written reply that the detailed design and tender documents of the 3,600-megawatt Kalabagh dam had been completed in 1988. But the construction of the dam can be undertaken by the government only on the basis of a “consensus decision”.
