London (UK), Sep 30 (ANI): Sindhi and Baloch political activists organised a demonstration in front of Pakistan High Commission in London to show their dissatisfaction against construction of dams on river Indus. The protest was organised by World Sindhi Congress (WSC) which believes that the construction of Diamer Bhasha Dam on River Indus is not only a political issue but it is matter of life and death for Sindhi nation. Baloch activists also joined the protest and raised their concern over exploitation of resources by Islamabad. The protesters said that the state is aggressively pursuing construction of mega projects China-Pak Economic Corridor (CPEC) and dams on river Indus without any consideration of rights of indigenous Sindhi people and the environment. WSC urged the Pakistani administration to scrap any mega dams from plans and instead focus thoroughly on modern water management and electricity generation from solar, nuclear, and other renewable energy sources.
