Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan said that Pakistan needs to build dams to resolve the water crisis. Along with this it is utmost important that Pakistan looks up at other alternate ways to come out of the economic crisis. Natural resources must be explored. Talent, on merit, must be allowed to come forward.
He said, “We can get the best people who are experts in their respective fields; we just need to utilise their abilities properly.
“As we have learnt, from history, mega construction projects were never completed on time, due to which their cost keeps on increasing. As a nation, we have to carefully use water at homes, industries and agricultural lands to reduce the shortage of natural resource.”
