In many letters I have been requesting the print media to undertake investigative reporting on the important issue of shortage of power and water. While special correspondents write regularly on other national issues there is no major effort in this direction. I request the national newspapers to publish comprehensive reports on: The Indus Waters Treaty, The Water Accord, the function of dams, the importance of reservoirs, the common apprehensions etc. A special correspondent should be assigned to raise questions on the various issues so that these issues can be fully addressed. It is essential to educate public opinion on the vital issue of power and water shortage.
