China aims to dry India’s north-east with 1000km Tunnel!
The dragon country is all set to dry the north-eastern part of India. A team of 100 scientists has been working on a 1000km tunnel project from the past couple of years. Now it is learned that a blueprint of the proposed project is submitted to the Chinese government.
According to the blueprint, the proposed project would completely divert the Brahmaputra River, known as Tsangpo in Tibet, to Xinjiang, an arid region in China using the 1000km tunnel.
‘Drain the Tsangpo from an autonomous region and tunnel it to the arid Xinjiang Uyghur region. Tibet being the world’s highest plateau makes it easier to diver the water stream. Various sections during the course of the tunnel can be connected by waterfall’, stated a scientist.
The proposed plan would cost the Chinese 936,000Crores (936 Crores / Km of the tunnel). The largest tunnel in China is the 85km long Dahuofang water project, while the 137km water supply to New York City is the longest tunnel. If the project becomes a reality, the whole of north-eastern India would soon resemble the sand dunes of Thar Desert. The Brahmaputra River is a source of livelihood to millions and has one of the world’s greatest eco-system.
