There has been tension on the border between the armies of India and China for a long time. Meanwhile, analyzing China’s strategy shows that China is making a strategy to capture India’s waters. In fact, new satellite pictures have revealed that China is building a new dam on the Mabja Zangbo river. Let us tell you that the India-Nepal-China borders meet just a few kilometers away from the place where this dam is being built. Intelligence researcher Damien Simon shared these pictures on his official Twitter handle.
China is using water as a weapon
Simon claims that China wants to control the water of this entire area through this dam. There is a huge reservoir of water near the place where the dam is being built. It is believed that China is building this dam to control this water. Right now the construction work of the dam is going on.
China’s dangerous conspiracy to control India’s water
It has been claimed in many media reports that by controlling the water, China wants to put pressure on South Asian countries, including India. According to a report, there are large reservoirs of water in the plateau of Tibet. China claims this entire water of Tibet as its own. Large rivers such as the Indus, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra, the Irrawaddy, the Salween, the Yangtze and the Mekong originate from the Tibetan Plateau. These rivers flow in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam and are a major source of irrigation and drinking water in these countries. According to estimates, every year about 718 billion cubic meters of water flows from the Tibetan Plateau to China and other neighboring countries. Out of this, about 48 per cent water flows in India alone. This is the reason why China’s claim on Tibet’s water increases India’s concern. It is feared that China may use this water as a weapon against India.
China can use the water flowing from the Tibetan Plateau as a weapon against India in three ways.
The flow of water can be changed by building a dam
Experts believe that China is building many big dams on the rivers flowing through Tibet. China plans to use this water to strengthen the country’s irrigation system and generate electricity. China is building such big dams on the Salween, Mekong, Yangze and Brahmaputra rivers. Due to this there may be shortage of water in many rivers flowing in India and Pakistan. This could lead to large scale irrigation and drinking water shortages in India and Pakistan. Also, China can completely change the flow of these rivers through dams. According to The Interpreter report, even after the skirmish between Indian and Chinese soldiers in the Galwan Valley, China had stopped the flow of water from the Galwan River. The Galwan River is a tributary of the Indus River. Due to this the water of Galvan river had stopped flowing into India.
can pollute water
Experts believe that China can also pollute the water of the rivers to bring pressure on India. Due to which the water flowing in India will not be fit for use. In the year 2017, the water of Siang river was also muddy and filled with silt. Due to this, the water of the river was not fit for use for some time. This had a major impact on agriculture in the Siang Valley. Let us tell you that the Brahmaputra river is formed when the Siang river comes down and the Lohit and Dibang meet.
China can also become the cause of flood
After controlling the water of the rivers flowing in India, China can also become the cause of floods in India. Explain that in the year 2008, there was an agreement between India and China, under which both the countries shared the data of Brahmaputra and Sutlej river with each other so that water could be managed in a better way. However, now experts feel that data is available after China, in such a situation it can take advantage of it and bring floods in these rivers as well. There were also reports during the Doklam clash in 2017 that China did not share data of Brahmaputra and Sutlej rivers water with India, which caused floods in Assam and Uttar Pradesh that year.
