Erosion scene grim at Srihati, Bor Lah

By Correspondent

SUALKUCHI, July 10 � Erosion caused by the Brahmaputra river from Srihati to Bor Lah has taken a serious turn and people living in the riverine areas are feeling insecure as the river is flowing above the normal level. Out of the 35 families affected by erosion at Srihati, 20 families have been rehabilitated so far. But the rest of the erosion-hit people have been living along the bank of the river for nearly 15 years. The affected people have called on the Chief Engineer of the State Water Resources Department and demanded rehabilitation. But there has been no positive response in this regard so far.

The erosion along the riverine area, covering a distance of 3 km from Saru Lah to Bor Lah, has caused concern among the people of these villages. Vast kharif crop fields have been eroded by the Brahmaputra in the last few days.

Erosion in the Laheshwari catchment areas on the southern bank of the Laheshwari rivulet, a small stream of the Brahmaputra, since the last several years has triggered panic among the farmers of Srihati, Lah, Kyantol, Halogaon, Bamundi and Silguri areas. Severe erosion has reduced the farming land and farmers have been forced to become daily wage earners in other towns.

The people of greater Bamundi have flayed the alleged apathy of the officials concerned towards their grievances and demanded proper steps to protect farming land as well as habitations.

On the other hand, the slow progress of the construction of an embankment at Bamundi has irked the people who have urged the Government to complete the works without delay.
