Afghan youth thanked India for reconstructing The Salma Dam by carrying a 100-metre tricolor. Afghan youth is highly active over social media these days and their tweets are filled with thank you note to India.  They expressed their gratitude for building the Salma Dam, which was reconstructed by India. The aid for the project was around $300 million.

The construction work is almost complete and water is being filled now. The Dam is expected to produce 42MW of electricity and will water nearly 80,000 hectares of farmland.
The project was started back in 2006, in the western Afghanistan in Herat province. Thousands of Afghan residents expressed their gratitude by visiting the Indian consulate in Herat and thanking the officials from India. This gesture will surely strengthen the bond between two nations and we hope to see more collaboration in future endeavors.
