Bro, I am not sure about the financial viability of this project. Even a subway tunnel costs at least 100-500 million USD or more at different parts of world. A thousand km subway tunnel translates to minimum $100 billon . Considering the size of Bramhaputra, even 10 subway tunnels might not be enough to divert enough water to make any significant difference. So is it worth spending 1 trillion $ for such a project ? And what will be the ROI? Lately many of China's "Sky in the Pie" kind of projects have miserably flopped due to lack of financial viability. I feel this will also join that list.IndoPacific_SCS_Info (@IndoPac_Info) Tweeted:

While we're busy playing peekaboo with who else but our favorite neighbor Pakistan, the Chinese are gearing up to screw us big time and the Bangladeshis too.
