Agriculture and Environment Awareness Center (AEAC) held a series of discussions to discuss various aspects of Punjab’s water crisis in 2022. Under this series a discussion on “Loot of Punjab’s River waters” was held at Khalsa Gurdwara in Ferozepur Cant on 5 August 2022. Speaking at this event, Sikh Siyasat editor Parmjeet Singh Gazi said that allocation of Punjab’s river water to non-riparian and non-basin states has resulted in aggravation of Punjab ground water crisis. He said that Punjab is forced to extract ground water to fulfil its needs as a result ground water level is depleting at a very high rate. Latest data reveals that 117 out of 150 blocks of Punjab are over-exploited in terms of ground water extraction. This clip is taken from speech of Parmjeet Singh Gazi.
