Gogoi urged not to buy Krishna�s version

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 17 � The Jana Jagriti, which has been raising the issue of Brahmaputra water diversion by China, called upon Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi not to buy the assurance of the External Affairs Minister SM Krishna that there was no cause of immediate danger from China.

It needs to be mentioned here that the External Affairs Ministry had downplayed Assam�s fear of Brahmaputra water diversion by China.

Jana Jagriti, while questioning on what ground the ministry gave such an assurance to Assam insisted that Tarun Gogoi should instead constitute a high-power technical committee to investigate into the issue.

Addressing mediapersons here, Jana Jagriti chief Ashokanand Singhal said China is great at misleading the world with propaganda and so it was important on the part of India to press China to permit an expert team from India to visit the sites where allegedly China has plans for hydro-power projects.

"China has not even shared water data with India," said Singhal adding that the need of the hour is to take up the issue with China seriously and if necessary India should go to the international forum. "Brahmaputra water diversion is a serious issue and India should establish first use right," remarked Singhal.
