IMABAD:LA In the first meeting of the reconstituted Council of Common Interests (CCI) on Monday, the Centre decided to resolve the water crisis in Sindh (with special emphasis on Karachi) and Balochistan, besides ensuring better education facilities across the country.

While presiding over the CCI meeting, Prime Minister Imran Khan assured the chief ministers that the federal government would take all the provinces on board to solve their problems. PM Khan said: “A comprehensive and transparent monitoring system for better water distribution among the provinces should be enforced to provide accurate and timely information to the provinces, because lack of right information cause misunderstandings.”
The CCI also reviewed energy problems of Balochistan and enhancement of its absorption capacity, short water supplies in Pat Feeder and Khirthar canals and agreed upon implementation of Kazi Committee Methodology (KCM) for calculation of net hydel profit. The meeting decided that the chief ministers of Sindh and Balochistan would sit together and settle the issue of Pat Feeder and Khirthar canals.
