By Correspondent

MORIGAON, July 13 � The Brahmaputra�s erosion in Bhuragaon and Mayong revenue circles of Morigaon district has taken a grim turn during last one week threatening the very existence of the two revenue circles. Erosion in Jatiyabori and Jengpori in Bhuragaon revenue circles has made more than 100 families homeless. The five century-old namghar, maszid were submerged into the mighty river Brahmaputra at Jatiyabori and Borkuri.

Though the Water Resource department has taken long term measures to curb the erosion problem, yet this year erosion of the Brahmaputra is going on. The affected people have taken shelter on the embankment under the open sky. They alleged that no relief materials were provided to them. Only PHE department distributed some tubewells for drinking water.

Though the flood situation is gradually improving, yet the road communication system in Bhuragaon and Mayong revenue circles is inoperative. The local people have expressed apprehension of outbreak of water-borne diseases.

Above all, the poor marginal famers who lost their boro crops in these two circles of Morigaon district are living in a very deplorable state. Majority of them are yet to pay their loan money to the bank or private merchants. They demanded the government to waive their loan or as an alternative provide kharif crop cultivation aid from the Agriculture Department.
