The Supreme Court has accepted Watan Party’s petition seeking a referendum on the construction of Kalabagh Dam.
Barrister Zafarullah, a leader of little-known Watan Party, submitted a petition in the apex court.
A special bench of SC headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar will hear the case on Saturday (June 9).
The Kalabagh Dam, which was first announced in 1953, is a proposed hydroelectric dam on the Indus River at Kalabagh in Mianwali.
Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan assemblies have passed several resolutions, condemning the Kalabagh Dam.
