Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar spoke to TV host and social media celebrity Waqar Zaka on Tuesday about raising funds for the Diamer-Bhasha dam.
“Building the dam is indispensible for the existence of Pakistan,” said the chief justice. “Our water resources are shrinking at a rapid pace and we need to properly manage water otherwise we won’t be able to survive.”
Justice Saqib Nisar and Waqar Zaka were on their way to London where they will attend a fundraising event for the Diamer Bhasha dam. A couple of months ago, Prime Minister Imran Khan had also addressed the nation and urged everyone to donate to the chief justice’s dam fund.
The chief justice urged everyone to attend the fundraiser and donate generously for Pakistan.
“I have no doubt in my mind that we will build the dam,” he said.
In response to a question about his health, the chief justice said that he was doing fine.
“You saw me the very next day after the heart attack—I was back on my feet and in court,” he said.
