  1. Just a few month's back, there is flood everywhere in china and in SEAsia. The dams in china had been releasing water and now the Mekong is dry up? ??? Blame their infrastructure! It has nothing to do with china. USE your low IQ brain !

  2. China should also control the air supply to other countries.Suffocate them to death rather than spreading chyna virus to thousands of it s own people so that it can eventually infect the world,

  3. this is just a lie, it very easy to understand, the dams are mainly for producing electricity using the potential energy carried by water but not water itself. totally independent Mekong committee (formed by local countries without China) reported the dams helped controlling flood in rain season.

  4. Lying. Indian reporter.. On the morning of December 6, as news came that the four men accused of gangraping and murdering a Hyderabad veterinarian had been shot dead by the police, a related post by OpIndia Hindi went viral. The blog claimed to have obtained the “original script” of NDTV India anchor Ravish Kumar’s primetime show of that evening which, it claimed, sympathised with the alleged rapists and described the police as killers. 

    “After the Hyderabad encounter in the morning, the script of NDTV journalist Ravish Kumar’s evening primetime show got leaked. A copy of the script was received from our source. But OpIndia does not take responsibility for its authenticity. We’re reproducing the script as it is,” the blog post declared. 

    The post is a sample of the unrestrained rhetoric OpIndia trades in. It does this in the guise of journalism. Of course, the blog doesn’t even follow the most fundamental of journalistic practices. Often, to escape accountability for what it publishes, OpIndia adds a caveat that it cannot vouch for the authenticity of the post. Consider the post on “Ravish’s script”. The blog did not so much as bother contacting NDTV or the anchor to authenticate it. 

    Here is what the blog claimed the “original script” stated: “Heard this morning that Hyderabad police has killed four persons accused of raping and killing the doctor in Hyderabad. The police are calling it an ‘encounter’. But then the police can do anything, they can call it a film shooting or tell the mothers of these four victims that their sons are in jail but they can’t meet them. Imagine the plight of the mother whose sole earning member is gone. Think about the plight of the mother who was upset because of the accusations hurled against her son. Who will she hire a lawyer for now that her son is gone? Just think about that Quint reporter who will have to again ask the mother how she feels about this extrajudicial killing of the sole earning member of her family.”

    Ravish, of course, never wrote this “script” or read it on TV. But when has OpIndia let the truth get in the way of an inflammatory headline? 

    After this story was published on Newslaundry Hindi,

  5. It is sad to see how China tries to take control over Southeast Asia. In their mind this is exactly one of the ways to do it. Soon neighbor countries such Thailand and Laos will have to buy water from China. What will happen to the local farmers and fishermen who depend solely on this river for farming and fishing? Can you imagine if all sudden China decides to open all the flooded gates in all the Dams or one or two Dams happened to break out? Nongkhai, Thailand and Vientiane, Laos will be under water for many years to come and many lives will be lost. It is sad to think about it.
