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 water-sharing issue.
