Beijing. Amid the ongoing border dispute with India in Eastern Ladakh, India (India China Tension) is now engaged in a nefarious conspiracy. Failing to counter the Indian Army on the border, China has now started a new maneuver to encircle India.
In fact, China is going to build a giant dam on the Dam On Brahamputra River flowing from Tibet. This dam is being built on the lower reaches of the river near the border with India. The construction of this dam will create drought conditions in the northeastern states of India and Bangladesh and will also increase the possibility of floods in the rainy season. The Brahmaputra river in China is called Yarlung Zhangbo, while in Arunachal Pradesh it is called Siang and then Assam it is called Brahmaputra.

It is being reported that the size of this dam will be very huge. This can be estimated from the fact that this dam will be able to generate three times more hydroelectricity (electricity generated from water) than the world’s largest dam Three George built in China.
The Global Times has indicated that the dam could be built in Madog County, Tibet, which is very close to the border with Arunachal Pradesh, India. Explain that before this, China has built many small dams on the Brahmaputra river. India has many times objected to the construction of a dam on the Brahmaputra river.
Drought feared in India-Bangladesh
Let me tell you that Brahmaputra is considered to be the basis of life for the northeastern states of India and Bangladesh. Millions of people depend on this river for their livelihood. In such a situation, the construction of a huge dam by China can create problems for millions of people.
The construction of a dam on this river could lead to drought conditions in the northeastern states of India and Bangladesh. In addition, in case of heavy rains during the rainy season, the risk of floods in these areas will also increase if water is released by China.

China currently controls the waters of the seven rivers Indus, Ganga, Brahmaputra, Irrawaddy, Salvin, Yangtze and Mekong flowing in South Asia. These rivers pass through Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam. 48% of this water passes through India. The construction of the largest dam on the Brahmaputra river is a matter of concern for India and Bangladesh.
This plan will run till 2025
According to the report, China will build this dam from this year. A proposal related to this project has already been passed in the 14th Five Year Plan to be implemented from next year. Yan Xiong, chairman of China’s Power Construction Cooperation and party secretary, said the dam would be built under the latest five-year plan. This scheme will run till the year 2025. According to a Global Times report, the dam on the Brahmaputra River is being built with China’s national security in mind.
Yan Xiong pointed out that this is a historic opportunity for China’s hydropower industry, as no such dam has been built in history before. This dam can generate 300 billion kWh of electricity every year.
