Water Dialogue in Pakistan
Water is a matter of life and death. During British Raj some accords were made among stakeholders but Seraikis as a community were never signatories and therefore feel no desire to fall victim of gridlock Pakistan has been facing since announcement of Kalabagh Dam. They want a new dialogue on water distribution system on local and national level. Seraikistan consists of eighty million Seraiki speaking people. Physical overpowering by Sikhs, British, Baluchis or Pathans never led to peaceful state of affairs in the region around River Indus. This mighty civilization survives till today as vibrant and youthful. Eighty million Seraiki speaking majority with a vast cultivate lands in the heart of Pakistan want statehood and demands such status for Pashtuns, Punjabis, Baluchis and Kasmeries as United States of Pakistan. Currency and Defense with Federation while in all other affairs these states would be free. A referendum on this issue can steer us to elections for a Constitutional Assembly on the basis of Adult Franchise.
