Morigaon facing threat of erosion from Brahmaputra

By Correspondent

MORIGAON, May 28 - The Brahmaputra�s erosion in Laharighat and Bhuragaon revenue circles in Morigaon district took a serious turn on Thursday, rendering more than 100 families homeless in these areas.

Due to non-repair of a dyke of the Brahmaputra, Kathoni and Mohmara villages are facing serious threat.

However, the Water Resources department seems to remain aloof in this regard.

According to a report, around 2,000 hectares of crops were damaged by flood waters. Similarly, Ambagan and Sutipar villages under Bhuragaon revenue circle are facing severe erosion threat.

It may be mentioned here that Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had directed the Water Resources department to carry out flood protection measures considering the gravity of the situation, but the Morigaon Water Resources department did nothing on the pretext of the lockdown. A dyke, which was breached by last year�s flood at Kathoni, is yet to be repaired.

Meanwhile, in Pokoria Mouza under Mayong revenue circle, Boro crops in 5,000 bighas were totally devastated by the Brahmaputra�s floodwaters.

ANN Service adds from Tihu: All major rivers in Nalbari district are now flowing above the danger mark due to incessant rains for the last few days. Low lying areas of Tihu town have been submerged by the flood waters, affecting normal life. Many wards of Tihu town are reeling under floodwaters. The overflowing water has submerged Lachima, Haldhibari and Nathkuchi villages.

On the other hand, the Marapagaldia river, which is also flowing above the danger level, has breached its east embankment at Nakerbari, submerging several villages, including Sanora, Majkuchi, Nakerbari, Gamarimuri, Nadla and Barbara. The floodwaters have also destroyed standing rabi crops and inundated residential areas.

ANN Service adds from Hatsingimari: Patakata and Tumni gaon panchayats of South Salmara Mankachar district are facing erosion threat from the Brahmaputra. The overflowing water of the river has inundated several new areas, causing hardship for the people. Around 1,000 families have been affected so far. According to a report, Patakata gaon panchayat has been hit hard by the current wave of flood as its historic Jama Masjid is now facing serious threat from the surging waters of the Brahmaputra. The local people have now demanded the State government to take up urgent steps in this regard.
