ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar Thursday sought a timeframe from the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) for the construction of Diamer-Bhasha Dam, adding that the court’s decision on Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand dams has become final as no review petition has been filed against it, a private TV channel reported. In a hearing on the matter, the chief justice said an implementation bench has been constituted to oversee the matter. Asking WAPDA to give a timeframe for the construction, he said the implementation bench will ensure completion of the work according to that timeframe. The Supreme Court and judges will also be accountable and not a single penny of the dams fund will be allowed to be spent on any other work, he asserted. Attorney general will be the focal person of the implementation bench, he added. The chief justice said that the objective of collecting funds for the dam was meant to launch a campaign for building the facilities. He said the court should be informed about any obstacle in the construction of the dam. The bench also asked about the total amount required for building the dam and that how and from where the funds will be arranged. The bench clarified that a large chunk of the funding will be provided by the federal government. Urging for submitting the timeframe for construction of the dam until Dec 24, the court adjourned the hearing. Published in Daily Times, December 7th 2018.
