Narayanpur villages threatened by erosion

By Correspondent

NORTH LAKHIMPUR, Aug 23 - Massive unabated erosion by the Subansiri in Lakhimpur district has threatened many villages with thousands of people.

Erosion by the Subansiri has been on in these areas under South Narayanpur Gaon Panchayat and Jamuguri Gaon Panchayat of Narayanpur Revenue Circle since 2011, thereby threatening the very existence of three villages.

The villages which have been exposed to continuous erosion in this area are Baligaon, Bothakhona and Aatura Sapori. Many residents of these villages have already lost their homes and agricultural land due to unabated erosion by the Subansiri.

During the last five years, almost 70 percent land of these three villages have been lost to erosion by the river. So far, only five families have managed to reside in their original homes in these villages.

Not surprisingly, the rest of the villagers have moved out from these areas fearing loss of life and property due to erosion by the river. Most of these displaced families have taken shelter in the embankments, while some of them have shifted towards the northern side of the river.

Moreover, a new stream of the Brahmaputra has been turning towards Baligaon village this year. If the Brahmaputra subsequently flows through this newly-carved stream towards Baligaon, then the entire geographical landscape under Narayanpur Revenue Circle would be changed forever.
