BJP demands permanent solution to floods

By Staff correspondent

DIBRUGARH, July 4 � Reiterating its demand for declaring the recurring flood and erosion issue of the State as national problem, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called upon the UPA Government at the Centre to initiate measures for a permanent solution to Assam�s flood and erosion problem.

BJP national general secretary, Kiran Maheswari after visiting the flood ravaged villages in Dibrugarh and Tinsukia district told mediapersons that the devastating flood and erosion is a burning problem of the State. �Given the enormity of the problem, Centre should go for a permanent solution,� Mahweswari said. She demanded that the flood and erosion be treated as national problem.

Maheswari, who had the party's local leader, Sarbananda Sonowal by her side during the press briefing, demanded dredging of the Brahmaputra river, which is rising due to massive siltation, sought extension of the anti erosion geo bag technology project from 2.6 kilometres to 9 kilometres in Kachuani village and demanded immediate restoration of road communications and erection of breached dykes.

The BJP general secretary further said that NDA would take up the matter seriously and if it comes to power, would treat the flood and erosion problem as a national problem. The visiting BJP leader also said that she was not satisfied with the relief measures taken by the State Government. Government should give at least Rs 10 lakh to the next of kin of those died in flood related incidents, Maheswari said.

Commenting on the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson, Sonia Gandhi to the State, the BJP leader said that their aerial view would have no meaning if they failed to announce permanent solutions to the flood and erosion problem.
