Water for water - India has shown its intention to resolve the dispute of stopping water flow of Chenab in the form of water for water. In this connection it has proposed a meeting of the Indus Water Commission (IWC) to assess reduction in the water flow, as Pakistan had earlier called for an explanation over the reduction in water level following trial running of Baglihar power project in Jammu. Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi Shahid Malik was told that the water level in Chenab was lower this year as compared to last year due to insufficient rains. Pakistan had been already informed about the impending reduction in the water level as filling of the Baglihar Dam was in progress. The level has now returned to the normal, Shahid said, adding figures given were much lower than the water released by India. Three units of the controversial Baglihar power project are expected to generate electricity next week. PakPressWatch.com article on Chenab River water flow / Baglihar hydropower project
