Kolkata: The expert commission set up by
West Bengal government to find an acceptable solution to the
Teesta water-sharing issue between India and Bangladesh is yet
to submit its report.

``A portion of my research is still to be completed. I
will have to study the flow of water in February and March.
I also need to get some dates from the Centre which I will
incorporate in my report,`` commission chairman Kalyan Rudra
said after a meeting with Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh
here.

Last year, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had pulled out
of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s entourage to Dhaka over
differences on the Teesta water-sharing issue.
On November 15 last year, Banerjee had appointed Rudra as
the head of the commission to work out a scientific solution
to the distribution of the Teesta water between India and
Bangladesh.

The next day after a meeting here with Bangladesh Foreign
Minister Dipu Moni, where the controversial Teesta water
sharing issue had figured prominently, Banerjee had informed
about the appointment of the expert committee.
