Following the Ur attack in 2016, India threatened to revoke the Indus Waters Treaty. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: ”Blood and water cannot flow.”   To date, such threats have not occurred.  However, India decided to resume the Tulbul project on the Jhelum River in the Kashmir Valley, which had previously been suspended in response to Pakistan`s objections.  Political analyst Hasan Askari Rizvi in Lahore said any change in Pakistan`s water supply would have devastating effects.  Constantly fearing Pakistan, India declared in February 2020 that it wanted to follow the IWT in its letter and spirit.   India received nearly 33 MF with 16%, while Pakistan received almost 177 MAF to 84%.   However, India can use western water to irrigate up to 701,000 hectares with a new water storage capacity of no more than 1.25 MAF and new hydroelectric storage operations (with the exception of authorized water storage with unlimited operation of river water projects) with a maximum storage capacity of 1.6 MAF and a flood storage capacity of 0.75 MAF.  These water allocations to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir are poor to meet its irrigation water needs, whereas the treaty allowed 80% of the land cultivated in Pakistan`s industrial basin to be irrigated.   The storage capacity authorized by the contract for hydroelectric power generation is less than the total amount of annual sludge that would accumulate in the reservoirs if the state`s entire water potential were fully exploited. [Citation required] Pakistan is also losing additional benefits by not allowing moderate water storage in the upstream J-K State, whose water would eventually be released for use in Pakistan and would avoid few dams on its territory. In the end, the J-K state is required to use expensive silen from its tanks to keep them operational.
While Pakistan plans to build multifunctional water reservoirs with massive storage for the clutter of multi-year tributaries such as the 4,500 MW Diamer Bhasha dam, the 3,600 MW Kalabagh dam, the 600 MW akhori dam, the Dasu dam, the Bunji dam, the Thakot dam, the Patan dam Etc.
