In a shocking development that may lead to environmental crisis in Arunachal Pradesh, water of Siang river in this northeastern state has turned black.

‘The water has become muddy and cement-like because of massive construction by China of a 1000-km tunnel to divert waters of the Brahmaputra’, claimed Congress MP Ninong Ering in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Ering said in his letter that there is no other reason that the mighty Siang should be dirty and black in the month of November, and that this tragedy has come to pass due to heavy excavation on the Chinese side.
