New Delhi: Defence Minister AK Antony on Thursday said the government was yet to get details of China`s plan to construct upstream dams on the Brahmaputra river and will take a considered view on the move.
"We will take a considered view about that," Antony told reporters at a function here when asked about China`s move to build three hydropower dams in the middle reaches of the river which originates in Tibet Autonomous Region and flows into India.
A media report on Wednesday said that the Chinese State Council had approved the dams under an energy development plan for 2015.
