A parliamentary team meant to assess the impacts of the Tipaimukh Dam over
the Barak River in Manipur, India, has postponed its visit to the site.
The team consists of Awami League lawmakers and is led by a former water resources
minister, Abdur Razzak.
Current Water Resources Minister Ramesh Chandra said that July
15th has been set as a tentative date for the visit. There had been
some confusion regarding the date of the visit, though he said that the final
date will be decided upon by the 13th.
The main opposition, BNP, has not yet named its representative
to the travelling team.
