1 crore 40 lakh acre feet of Punjab water has been stolen every year.
1 Acre Feet = 1236,694 Liter
Total Stolen Water = 17,313,716,000,000 Liter/year
When British left Indian subcontinent in 1947, a sovereign nation name 'Panjab' (land of 5 rivers - "Panj = 5" "Abb = rivers") was divided between India and Pakistan.
The Indian side Panjab (also spelled as Punjab) end up having two and half rivers Satluj, Beas and part of Ravi.
In 1948 Indian government decided to redirect those two rivers. For that matter, they build two big dams on both rivers and constructed 4 big canals, which took 76% of their water to the other states in India.
Panjab is purely an agriculture base state. Due to lack of river water, Panjabi farmer start drilling the underground water for their agricultural needs. Now they have no underground water let - even for their drinking needs.
Recently, Indian government decide to construct another canal to steal more water from Panjab's river (out of leftover 24%). People of Panjab are perceiving that action as a Final Assault on them, because they are already experiencing the desertification of their land due to shortage of water.
