Beijing/Guwahati: China has blocked a tributary of the mighty Brahmaputra in Tibet as part of the construction of its “most expensive” hydro-power project which could cause concern in India as it may impact water flows into the lower riparian countries, state-run Xinhua news agency reported Saturday.

However, R.N. Ravi, joint intelligence committee chairman, who was in Beijing on September 29 for a meeting with China, rejected reports in media about China blocking a tributary of the Brahmaputra river in Tibet.

 

Speaking to this newspaper on Saturday, the joint intelligence committee chairman said that China may have been building some dams in Tibet but it doesn’t have any intention to block Brahmaputra.
