Firstly, comments of our Foreign Minister and Indian HC would be contradicting. Two days ago Indian HC did mention that India wants bilateral talks. It was posted in this blog.
Secondly, if he did not propose, why are we anticipating with a positive answer already? Are we trying to initiate the ‘bi-lateral’ talks as if we would prefer it over international arbitration. That way, India can say that they merely “agreed” to our request.
Thirdly, it wud hv been better to state that we want a just solution to protect “our” rights instead of saying “their” rights.
Yesterday I was in North Bengal and I saw for myself what Farakka has done to that region. We drove through miles of fields where there was once water, before Farakka dried it up. Now we get floods during monsoon and land during spring. After Tipaimukh similar fate awaits Sylhet. Teesta sharing was trashed by mamata.
Is there any one thing for us to hope for a better deal through ‘bi-pakhkik’ alochona?
