Former Punjab Water Management director-general Mushtaq Gill has said India is disposing of industrial waste in Hadiara drain that eventually mixes with potable water along with BRB Canal and causes health hazards, including hepatitis.
He said Pakistan had never raised this issue with India, while the public is facing the consequences.
Gill was speaking at a seminar on ‘Water Resources, Energy and Food Security – Threat to World Peace’ organised by the Economics Department of the Government College, Township, on Tuesday.
