The trans-boundary river Teesta has almost dried up due to ‘unilateral withdrawal’ of water upstream by India, seriously affecting lives and livelihoods of the people in Bangladesh’s north. 
An official in the Joint Rivers’ Commission in Dhaka said that India was withdrawing water from various points of Teesta allowing a little amount to flow into Bangladesh that India could not manage upstream.
