GAURIPUR, July 25 - Unabated and severe erosion of the turbulent Gangadhar river for several weeks has washed away a large portion of the newly-constructed Kanuri-Dimakuri PWD Road at Binnachara causing severe disruption of road communication for hundreds of residents of areas along the Indo-Bangladesh border.

It may be mentioned that the construction of the only connecting PWD road of the border villages Kanuri, Lakshmimari, Gaikhowa, Nalia, Kedai, Bhagdanga, Berbhangi, Dimakuri, Binnachara etc., was completed a year ago at a cost of Rs 38 crore.

A nearly 10-km stretch of the road has already been washed away causing severe hardships to the people of the area. Due to severe erosion, more than a hundred families have lost their homes and are taking shelter elsewhere.

Presently, they are depending upon small boats for their livelihood. The affected people have alleged that no measures have yet been taken to prevent erosion of the river and they have been left at the mercy of God.
