GORESWAR, May 12 - Severe land erosion has been going on these days at Betagaon village under Tamulpur civil sub-division in Baksa district, posing serious threat to the existence of the local inhabitants there.

Unabated erosion has taken a serious turn at Betagaon due to incessant rain during the last couple of days at Suklai- Serfang BTC constituency in Baksa district of BTAD.

The local people of Betagaon have in recent times expressed apprehension that if land erosion continues at this rate, the entire area is likely to disappear into the womb of the river Puthimari.

According to the locals, since the beginning of this year�s monsoon season, land erosion at Betagaon has turned severe. Till date, Sudhan Barman, Ram Barman and Narayan Barman lost their houses to unabated erosion by the Puthimari river and have today become homeless at Betagaon village.

Besides, several bighas of land along with variety of valuable trees and plants in the courtyards of Bichitra Barman, Kartik Barman, Purna Barman, Joydev Barman, Nagen Barman, Chital Shil, Niranjan Shil, Basu Shil and Anukul Das have already been lost to unabated erosion by the river.

As compensation, the families who already lost everything to erosion by the Puthimari river received only a bundle of tin sheets from the BTC authority, but not a single coin was received as compensation from the state government till date.

The locals allege that though the concerned authorities were informed on time about the wrath of the Puthimari river, they did not pay any heed to the erosion problem. Hence the locals are trying to save their wealth and property from the erosion by installing bamboo barricades along with porcupines, besides dumping tree leaves and branches in the affected area as a protective measure.

The local residents have therefore urged the state government agencies once again to take immediate action to save the people of Betagaon village in Baksa district.
