Experts worry that China plans to use the Yarlung Zangbao dam to control the flow, putting pressure on downstream countries, as Beijing did with the Mekong River.
Since the deadly clash in June 2020, in which 20 Indian soldiers and several Chinese soldiers were killed in the disputed border area, Indians have been increasingly frustrated by China’s hydroelectric project. .
Indian media and a series of organizations such as the Center for Policy Studies (based in New Delhi) have warned the Yarlung Zangbo Dam will destroy the livelihoods of people in the downstream area.
Experts warn that if China proceeds with the Yarlung Zangbo dam project and tensions continue to escalate in the disputed border area, it risks leading to conflict like the war in 1962.
On the other hand, despite maintaining friendly relations with China, Bangladesh has also seen waves of people protesting against the Yarlung Zangbao dam project, according to Reuters.
