Correct Answer : Pakistan
Question Asked : SSC CHSL (10+2) Tier-I (CBE) Exam 2017
Explanation : Pakistan is known as country of Canals due to its extensive network of canals from Indus and its tributaries. Most of Pakistan’s canals are in Punjab province that are result of India’s partition which saw most of the canals going to the former. During India’s partition, Punjab was divided into West Punjab which came to be part of Pakistan and East Punjab which remained with India. East Punjab in India was relatively under-developed in irrigation works, while West Punjab in Pakistan included most of the canal systems of the pre-partition Indus basin.
