GUWAHATI: The crystal clear waters of the Siang river, considered the lifeline of northern Arunachal Pradesh for centuries, has suddenly turned dark black triggering panic in the frontier state.

The East Siang district authorities have pressed the alarm bell as the water of the river, containing large volumes of heavy slag, is no longer fit for consumption. "The water can't be used for any purpose because it contains a cement-like thick material. A lot of fish died one-and-half months ago," said East Siang district deputy commissioner Tamyo Tatak.

He added, "In the last monsoon season, the river turned dark and we thought that it was because of mud being carried by the river. The rainy season is long over but the river water is still black. From November to February, the water is crystal clear and pure. Even my grandfather has never seen or heard of such a thing happening to the waters of the Siang."

"It seems that some major cement work is on in the upper reaches of the river in China ... may be China is carrying out some deep water boring work. What else could be the reason for such a big river, which becomes the Brahmaputra, remaining black in colour for nearly two months," Tatak said. The Siang is the principal constituent river of the Brahmaputra and flows for 1,600 km through southern Tibet as the Yarlung Tsangpo or Yarlung Zangbo before entering India.

Well done China ..
This is the only way pappus and babus will rise from sleep and make a strict case or policy handling China in terms of rivers and water resource. Please come to Tawang also to give a tight slap on the sleeping MoD past 2 decades wasting time on Chai Samosa Negotiations and Corruption. When Indian citizens realize their family is in danger they suddenly become patriot. Before that when other citizen's family suffer, no one cares. This is the only way to wake up sleeping Indians.

It is a frustrated reaction after humiliation in Doklam. Modi knows very well how to crew china. Did you guys read the news that china fear India back stab if china attacks Taiwan. Believe me if modi remain in power for next 10 years, he will make china fall n line. US think tank righly said that only India knows how to handle china.

Really do you think babus have their families at border, that they would be affected? And you want "tight slap" to whom? People of Tawang or Indian Army?

Indian leaders waste way too much energy at winning another election, increasing vote percentage, such that real issues take back seat.

State and general elections must be conducted together.(Though it has one disadvantage, if crookress wins, it will give immense power to subvert the process, in order to loot country more easily, suppress opposition and easily make subvert election to continue its rule for more longer period)

^India's options in Mongolia are limited as it being landlocked between Russia and China. To top it , both countries try to limit Mongolia's ability to Maneuver on purpose. Mongolia did try to break free of China's yoke by responding to India's overtures. But China did to Mongolia, what India did to Nepal , and Mogolia quickly backed down.
Lets take another case: Vietnam.Even Vietnam is not eager to rile up China, so much so that its lukewarm to America's overtures. You want India to play dirty, you need to dump Germany and bring your skills back to India;) and call others. India has to prosper so that it can wield influence. Right now India's ability to Punch is limited to its economic influence. zimble onlee

It's not, when they helped Mongolia in their telecommunication no one uttered a single word. Which was highly vulnerable to China and Russia.
Russia doesn't trust China.

Arre Bhai .... jab yeh 1 Billion dollar Mongolia ko daan de kar aye thy tab inki akal ghas charney gayi thi? Mongolia wanted construction. So they they took Chinese help and invested this 1 billion into their projects. LOL.

And Chinese added 500 million dollar to this 1 billion + the construction

Vietnam is helpless because they have got rivers flowing into Vietnam from China. They are doing the same what they are doing to Brahmputra .

Go to Mongolia and help them building hydropower on the rivers and tributaries flowing southerly direction. But Babus and thullus in MEA and MoD are busy enjoying on tax payers money( of course not every one). In kutto ka dimag bus jama poonji mein aur ek dusre se jealous honey mein laga rehta hai.
U have no idea about geography of china , mongolia and central asia , China have complete water security in terms of geo-politics ,they are just wasting those and dumping pollutant in their rivers , thus destroying their own valuable water resources .
There is no River flows down to china from Mongolia , southern Mongolia is Gobi desert , all rivers in mongolia originated in central Mongolian Altai mountain and flows to north to Siberia , only one river that flows into Chinese Manchuria is a tributary of Amur river which create border between China-Russia , so there is no chance for us to threaten China by building dam anywhere

Unlike Outer Tiber ( which is now TAR) outer mongolia survive CCP aggression because complete opposite of our beloved Chacha Nehru soviet leader ensure that outer Mongolia prosper as a buffer state in between them and China .
Russia might not have any problem with India's "development" works in Mongolia . Also we already start initiative in Mongolia and I believe Russia might be happy with Indian involvement.
I believe that Russia may not fully back Mongolia due to it's new economic reliance on China ,but need to keep Mongolia neutral and unfortunately it's can't stay out of Chinese influence if any strong power can't back it..Russia would't allow US to take that spot , so if "friendly neutral" country liek India take the role to back Mongolia , they would relieve a bit from possible fear of Chinese takeover of Mongolia.

You are absolutely correct about the topography. But you missed one of the Major river which fills nur Hulun lake in China.

It's the Kherlen river.

The river which you are talking about is the Ergune river. It's a different one.

I am talking about Kherlen ...Kherlen is tributary of Ergune (which made 1st phase or Ergune-Amur border). It's barely have a 100-200 kms in proper china , before it merge with Ergune. Doing anything with the system will damage Russian farmers and their asset too.

We can't beat China on it's game in this case , since capture of Inner Tibet and outer Tibet upstream of all important Asian river is almost under CCP's control .
It's the reason that it have so strong authority over Thailand-laos-Combodia , as mekong , "ganges of SE asia" is under their full control .

It will not
because, it's the lake which is in China its one of the top 5 largest lakes.
and most importantly Ergune and amur have enough water for the Russians from it's tributaries like Shilka and Hailar.

Russians had objected to Chinese construction in Mongolia on a river flowing into Russia. But it's still under negotiations.

When Chinese don't care why should Russian care? They need to rather be brought on table along with Mongolia. Linking is the solution.

I agree that the lake is important , but the lake is almost 30 Km away from Ergune river , it's so close that if we even block Kherlen with dam , they literally need a canal from ergune to feed the lake .It's not a big deal . Our dependence in Brahmaputra is 100000 times bigger than Han-centric CCP's interest in that lake which marely benefit manchu ppl ( hans hate manchus) .

And even we assume that we going to hamper few lakhs of chinese by destroying the lake , but chinese have power to harm and effect almost 1/6th of Indian population by playing ugly card. We are there in Mongolia for gas and minerals and to mostly to back Mongolia who few month ago face energy blockhead from China .

This is the only reason for them to expand. They wanted sources of all rives into India, Kazakhistan, Russia, Japan and ASEAN countries.

and the Babus and Pappus in MOD were busy eating samosas.

But if MOD is sleeping let them sleep, the people should be aware of how to counter such helplessness.

With Mongolia or Kazakhstan India should really make very good relations. This would given India an opportunity before they get blackmailed by China on water.

What INdia had extended was Aid( with conditions). Mongolia could only use that aid through development projects executed via Indian company. I am not sure of that aid has been utilized yet or not
But definately they cant use that money to award projects to China. Thats not how Aid works.
M not in Germany I am in Switzerland I use vpn :D
Grrrrr... Jala mat

Being Commie themselves, they have love hate relationship. China has invested a lot in vietnam.
