ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar Wednesday remarked that people opposing the construction of dams are working on someone else’s agenda.

The CJ remarked this while hearing a case pertaining to the construction of Dadhocha dam in Rawalpindi.

During course of proceedings, he remarked that “We will not allow such elements to prevail their agenda of non-construction of dams as it is future of our next generations” he added.

The Chief Justice said that a politician said that Supreme Court should form its own political party.

“Nobody has right to utter such things, people cannot shake our commitment for construction of dams,” he added.

He said that dams would be constructed at any cost. NNI
