Is it fair ! exchange of enclaves banglaadesh/india .

150221170049_bd_india_enclaves_304x171_bbc_nocreditThe question of human rights organizations, exchange of enclaves

India, a human rights organization, exchange of enclaves would not solve the problem of the stateless people.
The human rights organization active in the border areas of the two countries ‘Masoom’ study, reported in today’s India and Bangladesh – to impose their decisions on chitamahalabasidera.
At the time, the group has released a report – West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee while visiting Dhaka, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina says that the upcoming parliamentary session of the India-Bangladesh land boundary agreement is going to be approved.
Masum human rights organizations report their study is not saying that the land exchange, the first letter chitamahalabasidera citizenship and civil services is much more important.
Secretary Masum kiriti Roy words, “the material aspects of the problem, really wanted to see the land. This implies that our objections. ”
M. Roy was also planned that the two countries have been exchanging enclaves of 16, it is residents have no opinion. The state is imposed.
Their study found that the Indian enclaves inside Bangladesh want to be associated with many inhabitants in the Indian mainland.

“Masuma report
16 and 18 to drop out of the top five in the Bangladeshi study blob. Bangladeshi enclaves in India will remain a drop in the survey.
Indian enclave before the retirement of the letter was to gather the opinions of the Bangladeshi study has chitagulite house.
As it happens, two decades protesting to demand exchange of enclaves of India-Bangladesh Enclave Exchange Coordination Committee said that the Bangladeshi enclaves survey twice before Indian citizenship to all residents. The Indian enclaves inside Bangladesh, a little more than seven hundred people who want to come to India – to be included in the rest of the country – said during a coordination committee.
Masum new study published today in the context of coordination, exchange of enclaves radiant and Sengupta committee leader said, “They do not know how the study continued. But I can tell that all was not talking with the enclave. ”
“Secondly, some people in the enclaves phensidila, marijuana and stolen motorcycles run deal. Enclaves after the passage of this act will be turned off vested interests. That is why these surveys are being done that should not be exchanged.”
Vested interests do not want exchange of enclaves – m. These are serious allegations raised Sengupta Secretary Masum was kiriti judgment. “Who realize that raising these questions. However, they stand in front of the mirror before themselves. They say that the land deal was etabachare why, and how to deal with these immoral, who gets the money. ”
Bangladeshi enclaves in India and this new study is not yet complete because Masum said.

One example of the ruthless nature of the contempt power project Rampal

The world’s largest mangrove Sundarbans National Park and UNESCO declared World Heritage said the best defense .
The boundaries of this reserve is kramasankucita banatira at 0 to 5 people in the death happened . However, locals claim , the number may be much higher .
Stories of death due to a lack of damage to the Sundarbans had to refrain from such activities . But now a new threat is serious for Sundarban . The Sundarbans Environment consternation in the future .
This is a new threat , post 1 of 3 0 MW coal power plant project Rampal . It is just 14 km away from the city Rampal will be built .
India’s state-owned National Thermal Power Corporation, a joint venture with the implementation of this project is planned . The claim , the prakalpatii the only way to meet the needs of the dear in the same area . The area is the one of the poorest elakagulorao .
But opponents claim , the Sundarbans is very environmentally sensitive area of a project to establish a coal power plant , it will bring disaster . The area of ​​the river – trough , canal – water bill and the plants will suffer . It may come down to which disaster pranabaicitryeo . Dolphins living in the river from the threat of extinction is the legendary Royal Bengal Tiger .Moreover, the Sundarbans, the storm – flooding – tidal works as a natural protection walls . Bangladesh in the world map as it is a low-lying area of land and banyaprabana . The Sundarbans is an extraordinary natural disaster destroyed the wall of defense of human life – is living a more serious threat .
Defense committee member of the newly formed Sundarbans roaring wave Wireless engineer said , ” The people have made a conscious realization of such a project can not seem to finish . ‘

However , in order to strengthen their claim birodhira in 1979 in a plant in Texas to create the same kind of environment that came crashing down when it appeared as an example . U.S. authorities claim that the construction of a plant in Texas , it is very much on the area of agriculture will not have a harmful effect . But the claim was later proven false .

In one study of 010 scientists from the report was that 30 thousand tons per year from the plant thick layer of sulfur dioxide are disrupting agricultural production in the whole state of Texas . In contrast, the proposed power plant in Rampal at least 5 thousand tons per year of sulfur dioxide will be thick layer .

Rampal power plant emissions from large amounts of toxic chemicals released to the public in January mulyayanapatreo are accepted . But rather to show the area as environmentally sensitive in general , residential and rural areas’ are shown . The magnitude of the risk of having a thick layer of toxic chemicals in the environment and forests ministry after the project has received clearance .

Critics claim that this decision was the lack of transparency surrounding the project , some basic questions and answers were given . The final result of the project in terms of generating electricity from the benefit and how to reduce waste and pollution levels will be processed to purify water ?

As well as the implementation of a project ‘s paribesagatabhabe serious harm neighboring countries of India, a large part of the funding issue is the widespread suspicion and anger . India ‘s power shortage in the country because there metatei himasima . Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh in India , two of the same kind have been forced to give up in the face of legal restrictions and ganapratirodhera .

Ritu University economist mosahida Sultana said , ‘ It’s hypocrisy . The legal obstacles because they are forced to give up the project . But in other countries , they are in violation of the law . ‘

The first director of the project, and is currently an Advisor Rampaul Azizur Rahman for political reasons in violation of the law, the complaint was denied . He said , generating electricity from oil and gas prices much higher .

Coal produced from the trust to bidyutai . ‘ I do not have any pressure outside . The Government of India in their own right – we are working according to the direction of our own – is follow the instructions . ‘

After seeing a specialist group of the project allows . Of detailed information – databases are open for everyone . Anyone who wants to say it will be delivered at the ajiujara .

He said , ‘ We must be able to control the pollution . In this case we are all set for the following calaba manadandai . ‘

However , the preservation of the environment , the role of the back of the qualms expressed . Due to the uncontrolled management of water stored in the ship threatened . Gathering wood , shrimp enclosure construction and other manabasrsta banancalagulo disaster the country has been constantly shrinking . The Soil Resource Development Institute dhakabhittika ‘s one of the images that came from . They found that , over the last decade almost 50 thousand hectares of forest have been destroyed .

Meanwhile , the government is already in the Sundarban river constituting the border has allowed the creation of a jahajabhanga industry , which is the destruction of the forest area is expected to take a more active role . In addition, toxic substances from industrial emissions of the ship to break the local community life – serious harmful effects on the livelihoods of examples Environment circumspection .

Abdullah Abu filed in the name of protecting the Sundarbans, one of the workers at the lammarcera said , ‘ People are still not aware of the important role of the Reserve banatira . It acts as a natural disaster, a wall of defense and a developing country like Bangladesh sorts of environmental resources and associated still do not understand it . ‘

He said , ‘ That’s a real sense that the only forest is a forest . Now even if we lose our next few generations, the environment will not have any toyakkai . It can be seen that , in choya , and bhalobasa feel that we care about are just that . And it is our nature . ‘

Climate Change in Fund illusion

Climate Change in Fund illusion – khatei cost management in 1000
climate change and deal with the risks of the funds of the illusion of progress . 5 crore to fund the independent sector . The cost of 1 crore has been shown only in khatei . The report of the Planning Commission with the responsibility of taking care of the environment and forests ministry technical aspects of the activities of the Ministry of Planning and the Ministry of Finance about arthacharera dropping is not recommended . The question of leadership in the Ministry of Environment and Forests and karyabidhigata validity . The money will be spent on climate funds through large parts of the subidhabhogidera due to managerial errors and samanbayahinatara not paumchacche . The target of the same kind of projects being implemented by ADP and climate funds such sums of money are being wasted .
Establishment of the Ministry for the various ministries that have been created karyabidhi , dealing with the climate change issue is included in the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Disaster Management . The implementation of the Monitoring and Evaluation Division ( aiemaidi ) is no inspection and evaluation .

Climate change in the mainstream economic activities related to climate change kausalapatre to speak with an even follow a different path, one of the Fund . The Government , Development – World Bank and the Asian Development Bank and partner countries ( ADB ) is financing the Fund . For each fund, the authority of the individual .
The slow pace of implementation of ADP projects – on the three funds by the government is tackling climate change .

Imported coal , depending on the bidyuekandra environmentalists and experts objected to the coming generation from the beginning . India and Bangladesh to jointly build bidyuekandra the coal to be brought from any country , the amount of the damage to the environment and how much the price of electricity will be produced – it is still not final .
A few months ago, Bangladesh – The agreement was signed at the . Agreement signed by representatives of the Government of India , Government of India is valued at the purchase price of electricity produced bidyuekandre . The Central Government, State Government of Bangladesh will have to pay the same price as the price of electricity supplies .

Teesta is the fourth major trans-boundary river in Bangladesh. Upstream inflow in this river provides key
support to agricultural production in the Teesta River floodplain (TRF) in the northwest region of the
country. Bangladesh constructed a barrage on the Teesta River in 1990 to provide irrigation water for crop
production in the Teesta Barrage Project (TBP) area. India has also constructed a barrage on this river
upstream. TBP started operation with limited conveyance infrastructure in 1993. The project was planned for
implementation in two phases. The phase 1 has been completed in 1998. A case study in the TBP area
suggests that irrigation water supply considerably raises farm incomes. This has increased irrigation water
demands. However, unilateral withdrawal of water in India upstream, limits irrigation water availability in
the TBP area. Therefore, water sharing with India is crucial in achieving food security and sustainable
livelihood in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh shares a common border with India in the west, north and east and with Myanmar in the southeast.
These borders cut across 57 rivers which discharge through Bangladesh into the Bay of Bengal in the south
(Mukhlesuzzaman 2003 and WARPO 2000). The upstream courses of these rivers traverse India, China,
Nepal and Bhutan. This international dimension is a crucial factor affecting the management of the local river
systems. Trans-boundary flows, which enter Bangladesh from remote catchments extending short distance
to thousands of kilometers upstream, are the important source of water resources. Among the trans-boundary
rivers, Teesta is the fourth major river in Bangladesh after Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. Teesta River
water provides key support to crop production in the extreme northwest region of Bangladesh. Bangladesh
has constructed a barrage on the Teesta River in Lalmonirhat district to provide irrigation water in the TBP
area from the river through a canal network. India has also constructed a barrage on this river at Gozaldoba
upstream. The present study examines the benefit of Teesta River water sharing in Bangladesh.
Teesta River
Teesta River was the principal tributary of the Karatoya-Atrai-Jamunaswari river system in the eastern part of
India until late eighteenth century (BWDB 1999). The river originates in the glaciers of the Himalayas in
Sikkim. It flows about 172 km in mountainous region before emerging into the alluvial plains of north Bengal
in India. The river crosses 97 km in Indian plains before it enters into the extreme northwest region of
Bangladesh. It flows about 124 km in Bangladesh and joins Brahmaputra River. The river changed its course
and is now recognized as an unstable, wandering and young river of the country. The present channel within
Bangladesh is about 177 km and width varies from 300 to 550 m. Bangladesh occupies about 2071 km2 or
17% of the total Teesta catchment area.
Teesta River Floodplain
The TRF in Bangladesh accounts for 14% of the total cropped area and 8.5% of the population in the country
(BBS 2001). About 63% of the total cropped area in the TRF is irrigated as compared to the national average
of 42% irrigated cropped land. On average, each unit of this irrigated cropped land supports 1.82 crops per
year as compared with national average of 1.75 crops per year. This indicates a direct association between
irrigation water availability and land use. About 64% of the total households in the TRF are farms, of which
78% are marginal or small, owning less than 1.0 ha of cultivated land (Census of Agriculture 1996). The
northwestern region, which includes the TRF, is considered to be the most drought-prone area of the country
(Murshid 1987). This region along the left bank of the Ganges River is termed as ‘dry zone’ (Brammer 1997).
The mean annual rainfall, which ranges from 1250 mm to 2000 mm, in this area is much lower compared
with 1600 mm to more than 5000 mm in the other regions of the country.
Teesta Barrage Project
Bangladesh constructed a barrage in 1990 on the Teesta River at Dalia in Lalmonirhat district to provide
irrigation water in three crop seasons from the river through canal networks in the TBP area. The major
physical components of the TBP comprise a 615 m barrage, a 110 m canal head regulator, 708 km irrigation
canal networks, 380 km drainage channels and 80 km flood embankment. The TBP was designed to provide
irrigation water, flood protection and drainage facilities for 749 000 ha of cultivated land. The project was
planned to be completed in two phases. Phase 1 was completed in June 1998 (Figure 1). The main
conveyance system completed under this phase includes 307 km main canals, 1450 km secondary canals,
2735 km tertiary canals and 8000 field outlets.

A lost battle of South Asia

M_Id_374779_damA vast and densely populated region of North-east India that depends on water from Brahmaputra and its tributaries is feeling agitated over China’s ambitious efforts to redraw its water map. China’s reported plan to divert the Brahmaputra from its upper reaches is being seen as a direct affront to India and a violation of International norms of sharing river waters. Once the construction of dam is complete, the control on the water of Brahmaputra will be in the hands of China. As the Brahmaputra is the lifeline of North East India, the life and environment in the region will be adversely affected by this development. The term Brahmaputra means “son of brahma” and in the early days of Indus valley civilizations Brahmaputra River is the subject of faith and legends of Bharat.

The Brahmaputra flows for about 1,625- km inside the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and for a further 918-km inside India. This is not the first time that tension is building up between India and China over Brahmaputra projects, which could affect the flow of water into India.

The BJP was quick to react to these reports and demanded that if there is fresh evidence of China’s intentions then India should immediately take up this matter with the Chinese authority. “These reports are of real concern to India. Since the last two years, there are reports that China wants to divert Brahmaputra waters from the Himalayas. If it is diverted, we will have real problems which will affect the economy of the whole region,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.The BJP MP had raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha last year.

Besides India, which raised the construction of a 510 MW dam on the Brahmaputra in talks with the Chinese leadership for many times. Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia had expressed similar concerns over eight dams being built on the Mekong river. The blame game, voiced in vulnerable river towns and Asian capitals from Pakistan to Vietnam, is rooted in fear that China’s accelerating programme of damming every major river flowing from the Tibetan plateau will trigger environmental imbalance, natural disasters, degrade fragile ecologies, divert vital water supplies.

A few analysts and environmental advocates even speak of water as a future trigger for war or diplomatic strong-arming, though others strongly doubt it will come to that. Still, the remapping of the water flow in the world’s most heavily populated and thirstiest region is happening on a gigantic scale, with potentially strategic implications. On the eight great Tibetan rivers alone, almost 20 dams have been built or are under construction while some 40 more are planned or proposed.

China is not alone in disrupting the region’s water flows. Others are doing it with even worse consequences. But China’s vast thirst for power and water, its control over the sources of the rivers and its ever-growing political clout make it a singular target of criticism and suspicion. “Whether China intends to use water as a political weapon or not, it is acquiring the capability to turn off the tap if it wants to — a leverage it can use to keep any riparian neighbours on good behaviour,” says Brahma Chellaney, an analyst at New Delhi’s Center for Policy Research and author of the forthcoming book Water: Asia’s New Battlefield.

Tibet’s spiritual leader, Dalai Lama, has also warned of looming dangers stemming from the Tibetan plateau. “It’s something very, very essential. So, since millions of Indians use water coming from the Himalayan glaciers… I think you (India) should express more serious concern. This is nothing to do with politics, just everybody’s interests, including Chinese people,” he said about the talking of Chinese intentions over the redrawing water map.

Although China is saying that it is constructing the dam to produce power but actually some hidden agendas are also associated with it.

The water resources of Brahmaputra will be a strong point to blackmail India. If China blocks the water in Brahmaputra, it will lead to famine in the whole NE region. India needs to take this issue seriously. The attention of international community needs to be attracted. But the problem here is that China does not care for anyone. It is trying an act of international bully. India needs a totally different tactic to tackle China. But can it handle.

Thus, the important concern is that whether the Indian policy makers will wake up before it’s too late. India lose its dignity in past because of sleeping diplomacy of Jawaharlal Nehru. When China started to build the Sinkiang to Ali highway in 1951 than our diplomats showed their concerned about the highway in written on October 18, 1958. In his conversation with Henry Kissinger , the than Chinese premier Zhou Enlai quoted “ even three years after the road was built, Nehru didn’t know about it. In my discussion with Nehru on the Sino–Indian boundary in 1956, he suddenly raised the issue of the road. I said, ‘you didn’t even know we were building a road for the last three years, and now you suddenly say that is your territory, I remarked upon how strange this was” (The National Security Archive). Although if it did not happen in the case of Brahmputra, in the case of highway projects and railway projects, we all know the GoI failed the nation. Indian government always wake up after the happening of policy disaster. Copy from
