Foreign Minister Dipu Moni yesterday said Indian High Commissioner Pinak Ranjan Chakravarty might have violated diplomatic norms through his comments on controversial Tipaimukh dam and Bangladeshi water experts.

This comes after Pinak Ranjan Chakravarty has said, over the last two years, as he has graced our humble land with his beatific presence:

  • Tipaimukh Dam is being opposed by “so-called” Bangladeshi experts on water-management.
  • Bangladesh will not be affected by the Tipaimukh Dam.
  • India will exercise sole control over all water flowing through the Tipaimulh Dam.
  • Most Bangladeshi expers opposing the Tipaimukh Dam are misinformed.
  • No international law can stop India from constructing the Tipaimukh Dam.
  • BNP is opposing the Tipaimukh Dam solely to get political mileage.
  • Any accusation that India is depriving Bangladesh of its due share of water is just empty political solgan.
  • Anyone who says that India has not consulted Bangladesh over Tipaimukh Dam is lying.
  • Those opposing the Tipaimukh Dam are only trying to poison the minds of friendly people of Bangladesh against India.
  • There would be no problems holding the December 2008 parliamentary election under Emergency Law.

And, my personal favorite:

  • India will not starve its own citizens just to send help to Bangladesh.

Today, the Obama Administration formally announced that they will be detaining people, through Presidential decree, even after they have been acquitted by American courts.
