BEIJING: Justifying its move to blockade a tributary of the Brahmaputra to construct a dam, China sought to allay apprehensions that it would affect the river flow into India claiming that there will be no adverse impact on downstream areas.
Terming the Lalho dam project on the Xiabuqu river, a tributary of the Brahmaputra which is locally called as Yarlung Zangbo, as an important livelihood project to address food security and flood safety in Tibet, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the tributary river is located completely within the Chinese side.
"The reservoir capacity of the project is less than 0.02 per cent of the average annual runoff of the Yarlung Zangbo- Brahmaputra. It cannot have an adverse impact on the downstream," Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a written reply to PTI to a question on India's concerns over the dam.
Boycott Chinese goods, that is least we can do for country
candu with time
China can''t be relied on its shallow statements. They could go to any extent to justify their rogue ideas.
Once Dam is erected on River Brhamputra -Yarlaung Zangbo , they may cause havoc by controlling, and releasing the water as per their mercy.
boycott chinese goods make self sufficient every village. If we do not use chinese goods we will not die.
Let''s all stop buying Chinese products ! They have become too Arogant!
NO to Chinese Products
Don''t ever believe the Chinks'' words, they are just lip service. Boycott all chinese goods. Never buy one.
Utter Pradesh has completely boycotted Chinese goods rest of India should follow.
who trusts china these days
slowly chinese gods should die in India and equally Indian goods should be reachable across world. Anyway our quality is much better.
It is India that should decide whether the dam will affect flow to India, not China,!
need some strict action against china
Water war stated by Mr.Modi....Media won''t let you know how serious is problem...
