Bangladesh and India have decided that they will jointly start the work for protection of the banks of the common rivers early February.
The consensus came on the second day of the secretary level talks of the Joint Rivers Commission at the state guesthouse Meghna in Dhaka on Tuesday.
At a press briefing after the talks, India’s Water Resources Secretary Umesh Narayan Panjiar said that he said the talks narrowed the gap about Teesta water-sharing but it needed further talks.
India would take water from river Feni for drinking for its Sabroom town but there was not decision about it.
Both sides agreed to hold more talks to take decision about small irrigation and drinking water project of Feni river.
Secretary of the water resources ministry of Bangladesh Wahid-Uz-Zaman led the 12-member Bangladesh team while Umesh Narayan Panjiar led his team during the two-day talks.
