 India’s refusal to provide Pakistan data about water levels in its dams and expected rains could spell grave danger for Pakistan in the wake of the approaching monsoons and resultant floods.

According to Water and Power department officials, the Pakistan High Commission had sought from India forecast data about water flow from dams built on Ravi, Sutlej and Bias, but India declined this request, reports The Nation.

Without India’s assistance, it would become even more difficult for the Pakistani authorities to take flood-management measures, they said.

According to sources, the National Disaster Management Authority held an emergency meeting in this regard and expressed concern over the development. After India’s refusal Pakistan will be totally depending on its radars installed in Sialkot, Lahore and Mangla for rain and flood assessment in order to be prepared to face any critical situation.
