Ahmedabad: Stating that water of India’s share from three of six rivers in “Akhand Bharat” is flowing into Pakistan, Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Sunday said the central government is trying to stop this outflow.

He said that Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh will get this water.

Addressing virtual ‘Jan Samvad’ rally of Gujarat BJP from Nagpur in Maharashtra, he also said India believed in peace and non-violence and do not want to be strong by becoming an expansionist.

“There were six rivers in Akhand Bharat (passing through both India and Pakistan. As per division, waters of three rivers were reserved for Pakistan, while the water of other three rivers was to be used by India. The water of our share was also flowing into Pakistan,” Gadkari said.

He said that states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh were not coming together on this issue earlier.

“For the first time since 1970, I asked our (former J&K governor Satya Pal Malik and Punjab Congress CM (Amarinder Singh) to sign a treaty. We are working to stop the water from
flowing into Pakistan. Now Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttarakhand, and Himachal will get this water. Our government shows the courage to take this decision, otherwise, nothing has
happened since 1970,” he said.

He said, “Seven out of nine projects (related to the division of water of rivers) where consensus had eluded states earlier have been cleared after CMs of these states were brought together to resolve the matter”.
