Indian govt positive on Teesta water sharing with Bangladesh
Water Resources and River Development Minister of India Uma Bharti on Friday said the Indian government has a positive stand on the Teesta water issue with Bangladesh and it will take the right decision on it considering all aspects.
“We don’t want any politics on Teesta water issue. All aspects on it are being examined carefully,” Bharti said before attending a meeting of her party BJP, in Howrah near Kolkata.
Asked about West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s unhappiness over the water sharing agreement, Bharti said “She (Mamata) is hardly happy on any issue.”
“Several questions have been raised on the issue both in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.
Things will be resolved through discussion with the state government,” she added.
