TEZPUR, Oct 17 - The massive erosion caused by the Gabharu river in the last few days has rendered altogether 60 families homeless at Nabil-Nankey area under Pub Bargaon Gaon Panchayat of Barchala LAC in Sonitpur district. Since the last few days, the erosion problem has turned into a major issue eroding over a 500 metre length of the embankment. It is to be stated that though the Department concerned has been taken the initiative to check the erosion problem in the area, it is too late and consequently, only a small portion of the embankment is left to be eroded.
Goma Devi, a local resident of Nabil area alleged that since the moment the problem took a serious turn, the authorities concerned including the Circle Officer, Thelamara Circle, Liza Talukdar, Local MLA, Ganesh Kumar Limbu and the district administration were informed, but no response was received. �Moreover, a couple of months ago, we intimated the district administration about the problem, but the latter citing lack of funds, neglected the problem, due to which we have been rendered homeless today,� Goma Devi lamented and urged the authorities to deal with the issue seriously without any further delay so that a permanent solution to the problem could be found.
