The Bangladesh parliamentary team is to visit the proposed Tipaimukh dam site in India this month, said Ramesh Chandra Sen, water resource minister of Bangladesh, on Wednesday.
The Bangladeshi team will have no representative from the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, which have voiced objections to the controversial mega-hydropower project.
What the Bangladesh team probably don't realized is that a visit to Tipaimukh dam site (in Hmarram) could be extremely dangerous. The area is the a stronghold of many heavily armed militants, among them the Hmar People's Convention(D) and Hmar National Army.
There are also talks of Minipuri (valley-based) militants trying to get back into Tipaimukh area after they were flushed out by the army some years ago.
