DOOMDOOMA, May 19 - Members of the Tinsukia district committee of Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) led by its president Surajit Moran and secretary Kanchan Borah visited the Dirak-Sumoni embankment of the Noa-Dihing near Kakopothar here on Monday and rendered voluntary service with the labourers, who are engaged in repair of the embankment with geo bags, in order to expedite the work so that it could be completed before the advent of the rainy season.
The AJYCP activists under reference were mainly from the Kakopothar area of the district.
It may be mentioned here that the Water Resources Department of the State government has sanctioned a project worth Rs 4.5 crore to repair the four critical portions of the embankment.
Later, talking to the local scribes, AJYCP�s Tinsukia district committee president Surajit Moran informed that only 50 per cent work of the embankment had been completed so far. He therefore urged the officials of the department and the contractors to expedite the work and complete it before onset of the flood season.
He expressed dissatisfaction over the matter that the government has sanctioned the project only for 500 metres of the 11.5 km-long embankment. He demanded a permanent scientific solution to the problem of the Dirak-Sumoni embankment of river Noa-Dihing, for which people of this region had been suffering since 1992.
