High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1976, High Point, North CarolinaHigh Point Enterprise sunday september 5, 1976 19b Bangladesh apparently readying for conflict with India Dacca the dumb Lings towards yet an other conflict on the Indian subcontinent have begun. The nine month old military government of Bangladesh seems to be shaping up for a confrontation with its giant neighbor India. For the past few months Bangladesh s military Leader major general Ziaur Rahman who seized Power last november has been attempting to Deal with the causes of the quarrel by discreet diplomacy. But it is now being said in Bangladesh s capital Dacca that these approaches have proved fruitless and the bangladeshis have decided to go for broke by confronting India publicly and even preparing for the possibility of a real conflict. Last weekend general Ziaur Rahman told a widely cheering gathering in Dacca of mukti Tahini Freedom fighters the men who fought against Pakistan in 1971 that they might soon i have to fight again to protect the Independence of he announced that the mukti Tahini would gel new military training so that they could reinforce the men of the bangladeshi j army. The warning came three Days after general Ziaur Rahman launched a Strong attack on India at the. Colombo non aligned Summit. During the conference bangladeshi delegates lobbied for support against India and called it Neo colonialist and in the past month there has been a resurgence of strident anti Indian propaganda in the bangladeshi press with editorial writers talking of a Man made tragedy which could engulf the whole the dispute with India involves two issues. First. Bangladesh alleges that India has broken an agreement drawn up when the s300 million far Akka barrage was completed 11 Miles inside Indian territory. The barrage Complex with a 20-mile feeder canal is designed to divert water from the Ganges to the Hooghly River in an attempt to Clear away the dangerous silting of the Waterways around India s port of Calcutta. According to bangladeshi officials the two countries agreed to conduct a in s n avy gunner s mate Seaman Steven c. Ii stain 22, son of or. And mrs. John h.

I Brief test diversion of water in May 1975, but India continued siphoning after the test ended. The diversion has had a marked effect on Bangladesh s agriculture according to b. M. Abbas the presidential adviser on irrigation and water control during the dry season from mid March to mid May More than acres of Paddy were lost to drought nearly two thirds of the tube Wells could not be used and serious salivation problems developed in the South of Bangladesh As Salt water began seeping up canals and Rivers. The Cost this year alone has been More than million and this will grow. General Ziaur s second accusation is that India is training and arming guerrilla groups which since january have been making sabotage raids into the province of myme Singh from base Camps just inside the Indian Border in the megh Alaya area. The guerrillas Are mainly those supporters of sheikh Mujibur Rahman who fled Bangladesh after the overthrow and murder of the sheikh a year ago. They Are led by a flamboyant hero of the 1971 War against Pakistan Kader Siddique and have blown up Bridges and government buildings and murdered local officials in the North. The martial Law authorities in Dacca assert that they Are trained by India s Border Security Force and claim to have captured documents and weapons proving the Indian connection. No doubt Bangladesh at least in Public is exaggerating both issues. But they have now become the focus of intense anti Indian feelings the depth of which surprises even Western diplomats. Perhaps part of the government s is to use this As a Means of uniting Bangladesh no Small attraction in a country which has gone through three coups d eat in 12 months and is facing a new round of instability As next february s election approaches. India s motives Are More obscure. Admiral m. H. Khan the Bangladesh Navy s chief of staff hazards the guess that India wants to destabilize his country in the Hope of imposing a More pro Indian administration in Dacca. Given India s High handed policies in the past towards its smaller neighbors Sikkim and Nepal other senior officials claim that it is just another manifestation of Indian the Prospect of overt Indian military action against Bangladesh might seem Remote. What Indian government after All would want to take Over 70 million poverty stricken and hostile moslem but the fear in Dacca is that if mrs. Gandhi stumbles on the Road to her new democracy in India she might exploit the quarrel with Bangladesh to create a wave of jingoism popularity to keep her in Power.
