NEW DELHI: The government has decided to stop India's share of water that flows to Pakistan and divert water from eastern rivers to people in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said Thursday


The decision comes after the Pulwama terror attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel for which India has blamed Pakistan

"Under the leadership of Hon'ble PM Sri @narendramodi ji, Our Govt. has decided to stop our share of water which used to flow to Pakistan. We will divert water from Eastern rivers and supply it to our people in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab," Gadkari said in a tweet

An official said the eastern rivers are Ravi, Beas and Sutlej.

Gadkari is Water Resources, Shipping, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Minister.
