In a Chinese national vernacular, top brass of higher authority of China has clarified their stand regarding Brahmaputra dispute with India. In an official declaration, one of the representatives of Chinese government has stated clearly that China is under compulsion to channelize water from the upper reaches of the river to other parts of the country to overtake water scarcity.

However, Indian government is not satisfied with the answer backfired by Chinese experts. The fact is that Brahmaputra supplies water to India and its neighboring countries like Bangladesh. River water is used to generate electricity. Brahmaputra is therefore equally important to India. On the other hand, Beijing government has finalized a deal which amounts to $1.2 billion for the production of hydroelectric power generator to serve the purpose. Yarlung Tsangpo is the other name of Brahmaputra in China. Now the problem is complicated with the decision taken by Chinese authority. In an official brief, Indian top brass has told reporters that due to the establishment of new hydroelectric power station on Yarlung Tsangpo, the outer reaches of Brahmaputra will be affected. Water should not be diverted drastically and randomly. It will create problem for India during lean days. Bangladesh will also be under risk of water shortage.

China has expressed its standpoint in this regard. However, if the water shifting program is finalized, it is still under the coverage to what extent India will accept this type of Chinese resolution. However few critics claim that it can dampen the enrichment of diplomatic relationship between two Asian countries.
