I always do what I promise Modi warns Pakistan hes serious about using 100% of Indian river waters

Indian PM Narendra Modi has warned Pakistan he means what he said about not wasting a single drop of ‘Indian water’, after Islamabad stated that any attempt to divert rivers would be viewed as an ‘act of aggression.’ “Once I decide to do something, I always accomplish that,” the PM told an election rally on Friday, slamming the opposition party for allowing a portion of India’s river water to leave the country. However, Pakistani Foreign Minister Muhammad Faisal had accused India of not just planning to utilize its water share to the max, but plotting to actually divert the rivers, and framed the PM’s words as “another glaring example of the fact that the present government of India is bent upon making India an irresponsible and aggressive state that has no regard for human rights or international obligations.” He stated that Pakistan has “exclusive rights” over three western rivers under the Indus Water Treaty. Modi pledged during a rally in Haryana earlier this week to “stop” the waters flowing to Pakistan and “bring it to [farmers’] households” in Haryana and Rajasthan, promising supporters that work was already underway on the project. On Friday, he elaborated on his plan to free farmers in Haryana from dependence on weather, which left India catastrophically dry until the monsoon earlier this month drenched the nation. Modi promised to invest 3.5 lakh crore rupees over the next five years to beef up irrigation systems in the state, including recycling household water for that purpose, along with diverting river waters. Under the Indus Water Treaty, India and Pakistan share the waters of the six rivers that run through both countries. The 1960 agreement has not been broken despite three wars. India has rights to the waters of the Ravi, Beas, and Sutlej rivers – but about 5 percent of unused water from those rivers currently flows into Pakistan.

I just don’t care what happens to the pakis. India can build a 3-rivers scale dam for all I care.

I don’t care about the Pakis either but... 2 nuke nations in a snit. Worth keeping en eye on. Many wars fought over water. Almost as many recently as over oil and historically more.

They’ve been in a mutual snit since their Partition.

A war will devastate Silicon Valley and the IT departments of most U.S. corporations once the young H1Bs all run (or as I've observed - walk slowly - so very very slowly) to catch flights back to the motherland to fight.

This could go very badly. I remember when India and Pakistan were on the verge of a nuclear exchange over Kashmir. Water supply is a more critical issue than territorial pride.

From what I understand, the word “rival” is derived from the word “river,” due to fights over water.

late 16th century: from Latin rivalis, originally in the sense ‘person using the same stream as another’, from rivus ‘stream’.

You learn something new every day. Thanks.

I’m no fan of the pakis or any muzzie but I don’t like diverting river flows. Dirty pool. The dirtiest.

In groups of four or five holding their cell phones talking to India.

Modi is taking cues from Trump's playbook.

Yeah, no water is an existential threat (that term is so commonly used these days, but it really fits here). So if India wants to push Pakistan into using nukes, they’ve found a way to do it.

Let this come to war!!! Oh, I forgot, that won’t happen. They both have nukes and MAD works.

If MODI is really smart, he will use his threats on the rivers waters to extract demands on Pakistan over its terrorists and Kashmir. Saying: O.K., I’ll change my plans about the rivers if in return you . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Wouldn’t it be something if Trump suggested Modi take this track to solve the Kashmir issue. They were together recently and using something like this for negotiation is so Trumpian.
