Timaimukh Dam has drawn much public and media attention by this time. Protests, demonstrations and discussions are going on in Bangladesh and elsewhere.
The Bangladesh Government has decided to send a Parliamentary Committee to visit the Tipaimukh Dam to understand the impact the Dam on Bangladesh. Later the Government expressed to include the experts in the Committee or a separate Expert Committee to explore the dam.
The ordinary citizen/s has little chance to visit the dam physically, so let us explore the dam from the contents of the Internet which may give us a better view of the problem.
