Survey of Rivers In TAR

(PTI; Xinhua) Amid concerns in India and Bangladesh over China's plans to construct a dam on the Brahmaputra in Tibet, Chinese officials have started a survey of the Himalayan region's major rivers - Yarlung Tsangpo (Brahmaputra), Nyangchu, Lhasa (Kyichu), Niyang and Yarlung - to collect information and statistics about the water resources in these rivers. Officials from the environment and resources committee of the TAR People's Congress (local legislature) will conduct the survey "As part of a nationwide environmental protection drive, the campaign will be the longest and most wide-ranging examination of the region's use of water resources", Xinhua news agency quoted the deputy director of the standing committee of the TAR People's Congress, Luosang Toinzhub as saying in Lhasa.
