Erosion turns menacing in Bhuragaon

By Correspondent

MORIGAON, May 6 � The Brahmaputra river�s erosion near Bhuragaon took a serious turn during the last four days with 25 families rendered homeless.

According to official sources, revenue villages Tulsibori and Mikirgaon under Bhuragaon revenue circle of Morigaon district were partially eroded on Monday forcing as many as 25 families to take shelter on the embankment of the Brahmaputra.

Around 700 hectares of agricultural land with standing crops and vegetables have been affected by the erosion. The water resource department has started repairing works of the dyke in the Tulsibori-Jatiabori portion, but the erosion is going on threatening the existence of Tulsibori village. If the erosion of the Brahmaputra continues, the northern part of the Bhuragaon circle will soon be devoured by the river.
