Elected Governments have done nothing to build dams in the last ten years? Tell me at the places where the dams can be built, let me know the solution to the problem, let me know the required human resources, so I will call the experts to the court and close the door until the problem is resolved.
He went on, “Supreme Court will take the first steps for the construction of the dam, we have to solve the water problem, we have to work on the facing emergency and war situations, we should gather people so they can give suggestions as everyone needs to sit together and think about a solution to the issue. “

He also said that India has built 4500 dams. Shamsul Mulk said some people say that making a dam is not a task for a Chief Justice. But only the Chief Justice can do justice in this case.
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar said that the dams are very important for the development of Pakistan. Four brothers (provinces) should agree as they will have to make sacrifices to solve this issue. We have to solve the problem of water.
