  • Anand Kumar replies: The previous BNP-led government in Bangladesh was opposed to the construction of Tipaimukh Dam. The present Sheikh Hasina government is currently in discussion with the Indian government over the construction of this dam. As a result, its stand so far is not clear. India, on the other hand, is not opposed to the construction of this dam which is run-of-the-river project. Hence, no water will be diverted and construction of this dam would not harm Bangladeshi interest.
