The Supreme Court has summoned Minister for Power Omar Ayub, Finance Minister Asad Umar and Cabinet Secretary on 15th January in the case related to the construction of Nai Gaj Dam in Sindh.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqb Nisar expressed disappointment that the matter of Nai Gaj Dam's construction may not be resolved within his tenure.

The petition is seeking apex court's directives for allocation of sufficient funds for construction of Nai Gaj Dam.
