Many of us know that after terrorist attack on Indian parliament in 2001 when operation PARAKRAM was failed to achieve its objectives, a new doctrine was planned by former Army General Sundarji christened as Cold Start to crush Pakistan with a co-ordinated military strike in a short period of 72 hours. But after 2015, observing the Chinese huge investment of $52 billion in Pakistan & their interest to protect the CPEC at any cost signalled the concept of two front war real in future.
Therefore, the existence of Cold start needs to be transformed into a two-front strategy giving less time to devastate Pakistan before diverting maximum columns to Northern frontier. As military advancement needs more time, we need to tap the core of IWT (INDUS WATER TREATY) so that we annihilate Pakistan in less time with a single shot.
As we know, Indus water basin comprises 6 rivers where 3 east flowing rivers Beas, Ravi, Sutlej are given to India & rest 3 west flowing rivers Indus, Chenab & Jhelum are authorized to Pakistan according to UN’s Indus Water Treaty. The Indus River provides key water resources for Pakistani’s Economy – especially the breadbasket of Pakistani Punjab which accounts for most of the nation’s agricultural production. everybody is aware of Pakistani Punjabi Muslims hatred towards India & their narrow philosophy which clearly states Bleed India With Thousands of Cuts. So, India must have to forget it’s Mankind during war, otherwise we will have the same situation as ARJUN had with KARNA in Mahabharat. In fact, Pakistani military is Punjabi dominated, destroying Punjab with creating Artificial flood is the only option to cut the head of the snake.
The ongoing dispute over the construction of the 330-MW Kishenganga and 850-MW Ratle hydroelectric plants on the tributaries of the Jhelum and Chenab rivers in Jammu and Kashmir possess a big threat to Pakistan & it’s CPEC. But India is near the construction of these two power plants as world bank shows green signal.
Another project is The Tulbul project (Islamabad calls it Wullar Barrage) , a “navigation lock-cum-control structure” at the mouth of the Wullar lake, located on the Jhelum river which was revised after Uri Attack. The idea to ensure year-round navigation along the 20-km stretch from Anantnag to Srinagar and Baramulla, and on the 22 km-stretch between Sopore and Baramulla that becomes non-navigable in winter with water depth of only 2.5 ft. The project envisages water release from lake to maintain minimum draught of 4.5 feet in Jhelum.
1. India gets to control Jhelum water, impact Pakistan agriculture
2. Project can create problems for Pakistan’s triple-canal project that connects Jhelum-Chenab with Upper Bari Doab Canal
3. With a barrage, India controls release of water into Jhelum, which could trigger a flood or drought in POK and Pakistan. Serious implications for agriculture in Pakistan
4. Sawalkot Dam ,1856 MW Power Project is all set to begin this year on the Chenab river in Jammu and Kashmir would pose the same threat to Pakistan’s economy.
Once war is invoked on India by both China & Pakistan, India will have to Open it’s all dams constructed on Indus water basin at first. With this offensive, Pakistan’s military backbone will be crushed as well as their CPEC developments. The flood of 2010 in Pakistan reminds its catastrophic impact on their economy & standard of living which damages were estimated to cost around $40 billion. The force of Indus water wouldn’t let any Pakistani Punjabi to survive on their soil. Then we can send our air strike Units to destroy rest nuke sites in Baluchistan & other areas including the military columns to invade The Terroristan while diverting maximum Western & South-Wester Military contingents to Northern Border. The less experienced Chinese army on mountainous Warfare will find it difficult to fight Indian military’s Offensive-Defence Strategy. So, India needs to do a lot trap its Enemies In her CHAKRAVYUH.
