India has protested to the UN Security Council over the Mangla Dam project of the Pakistan Government. In a letter to the Council President, Dr. Francisco Urrutia, of Colombia on August 21, the Indian Ambassador, Mr. Arthur Lall, said the execution of the project was “a further instance of consolidation by the Government of Pakistan of their authority over the Indian territory of Jammu and Kashmir which they continue to occupy by force.” Mr. Lall said the Pakistan Government continued “the exploitation of the resources of the territory to the disadvantage of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and for the benefit of the people of Pakistan.” He referred to “this further instance of violation by the Government of Pakistan of the Security Council resolution of January 17, 1948, which calls upon both the Governments of India and Pakistan to refrain from making any statements and from doing or causing to be done or permitting any acts which might aggravate the situation.”
