Teesta report by month-end
Kolkata: River expert Kalyan Rudra, who
heads the commission set up by the West Bengal government to
find an acceptable solution to the Teesta water issue between
India and Bangladesh, on Thursday said he would submit his report
probably by the end of this month.
"I will submit the report to the chief minister by
this month-end hopefully," Rudra said.
Refusing to divulge contents of the report by the
commission set up by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, he said,
its preparation was in final stage.
"Stress has been laid on mutually-accepted solution
to the river issue," he said.
The chief minister had appointed Rudra on November 15
to head the commission to work out a scientific solution on
the distribution of Teesta water between the two countries.
Banerjee, who earlier pulled out of Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh`s entourage to Bangladesh reportedly on the
issue of Teesta water-sharing, had said after meeting with
Bangladesh Foreign minister Dipu Moni last month that she had
appointed an expert committee to study the Teesta
