NEW DELHI/DHAKA: State-run Indian firm Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) is poised to seal a contract to build a $1.6 billion power plant in Bangladesh, beating out a Chinese competitor in the latest commercial tussle between the region’s two dominant powers.
After China’s recent success in pushing development projects in Sri Lanka, a breakthrough in Bangladesh would be welcome news for Indian officials who have long fretted over Beijing’s encroachment on to territory it considers its own back yard.
India believes Bangladesh is a part of a “String of Pearls” China is building across the Indian Ocean that stretches from Gwadar port in Pakistan to Djibouti on the African coast where it is building a naval base.
Great news for India. Somehow we need to shut China’s mouth. Otherwise this giant dragon will swallow everything.

The location of the plant raises questions about India’s security
For your information, India is also negotiating to construct a port in Bangladesh.Are we so weak that you have to always feel insecure? What are the security threats from a power plant any way?
This again shows the working of our current government and PM.
Yet another master stroke by Modi Govt!
Shabash India!! Keep it up and beat China in each and every field.
This a true example of ‘MADE IN INDIA’ project in a foreign country
Thanks to Modi & his foreign policy. Those who targeted him for his foreign trips should apologize
