The Congress leader stated there is a “quite dangerous” artificial lake that has come into existence on the Yarlung Tsangpo river in Tibet, just above the Indian state. “This is a massive lake, where it’d not be improper, it’d not be an exaggeration, to call it a potential water bomb. Right below it, is Arunachal’s Siang river basin, a huge basin.

“The slightest crack, fissure (or) wilful sabotage would inundate & flood the overall Siang basin to the nice misery of Arunachal, the nice misery of the common person of Arunachal.”
