‘India has no right’… China is stunned to see the hydropower project in Arunachal

India is planning to spend $1 billion to speed up the construction of 12 hydropower stations in Arunachal Pradesh. China is furious after seeing this recent report. China’s Foreign Ministry has spewed venom against India. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that India has no right to develop in the area which China calls South Tibet. Actually, China keeps making its baseless claim on Arunachal Pradesh. India has always rejected this claim of China.

According to the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, the alleged South Tibet is a part of China. The Chinese spokesperson said that India has no right to develop in this area. Any kind of construction is illegal and invalid. The Indian Foreign Ministry has not commented on this at the moment. However, India has been rejecting China’s baseless claims earlier as well. India says that Arunachal Pradesh was, is and will remain its integral part.

What was said in the report?

News agency Reuters quoted sources in its report as saying that Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently approved financial assistance of up to Rs 7.5 billion ($89.85 million) for each hydropower project in the Northeast region. Sources familiar with the matter said that about Rs 90 billion is likely to be allocated for 12 hydropower projects in Arunachal Pradesh under this scheme. Plans for hydropower stations may be announced in the 2024-25 Union Budget. The budget will come on July 23.

China can build a dam

India and China have a disputed border of more than 2,500 kilometers. There was a war between the two countries in 1962 over this. There are reports that China may build a dam on a part of the Brahmaputra River, which flows from Tibet through Arunachal Pradesh. India is concerned that Chinese projects in the region could lead to flash floods or water shortages. There has been increased tension between the two countries for the last few years. Due to this, both countries are engaged in improving their infrastructure projects near the border.
