A few days ago, China announced a huge hydropower project by building a dam on the Brahmaputra, one of the largest rivers in Asia. This has created a threat of water crisis in North-East India. However, if China builds a dam on the Brahmaputra, India will not remain silent. They will also build a counter dam on that river. This information was given by the Indian media G News on Wednesday.
India has objections to China’s hydropower project in the Brahmaputra. This is because if China builds a dam there, there will be a risk of floods in several parts of India. However, India did not reach a diplomatic solution and entered into a kind of competition.
Dam instead of dam, which means India is starting a 10 gigawatt hydropower project in the Brahmaputra in response to the Chinese project. Indian diplomats believe that counter-dams and hydropower projects are being undertaken in India to put pressure on China.
The country’s Union Ministry of Water Resources has also said that China needs to build its own reservoir in Arunachal Pradesh to deal with the impact of building a reservoir on the Brahmaputra.
