China begins construction of Tibet’s biggest dam
BEIJING: China has started construction of its biggest hydropower project in Tibet costing over US$ 3 billion, which will supply electricity to the economically well-off regions in the country’s eastern region.
The Suwalong hydropower project at the junction of Mangkam county in Tibet and Batang county in Sichuan province has a design capacity of 1.2 gigawatts and will be able to generate about 5,400 gigawatt hours of electricity a year when completed in 2021, official media reported.
The design capacity is more than double that of the Zangmu hydropower plant on Brahmaputra river which Tibet’s largest existing hydro project.
In India, however, the government is still working on the slogans for the new projects.
in name of development, beautiful nature is rap*d!
they are killing India and south east asia, just strolling
Chinks are way way ahead in planning,management and implementation than Indians
In India we are more interested in making black money and kickbacks
India needs to connect all its rivers. So many places have floods and so many places have severe drought…
In planning and actual delivery of infrastructural development projects, India is far behind China. Even taking decision, it takes one decade so how can they complete projects in time!?
The reasons behind China’s economic success are many but by far the important one is the building of infrastructure like there is no tomorrow. Recently, Bill Gates pointed out that China’s usage of cement in the last three years was more than what the US used in the 20th Century. After the completion of the Qinghai-Tibet railway in 2006, China is now able to transport raw materials to Tibet rending the construction of much need infrastructure much easier. This new dam will help to improve the standard of living of Tibetans.
Tibet is part of China …what about northeast 100000 widows,every day 3 youths dying…yesterday illegally killed Arunachalis girl in Maharashtra….

WE SHOULD PROTEST.
It is not amazing that Chines are building a mega dam in a illegal occupied Tibetan land without any challenge inside or outside the country. More strange is that they are
cynically quick in accomplishing such projects.
This will again cause the earth to shift its centre.
