Tinsukia AJYCP seeks respite from erosion

By Correspondent

TINSUKIA, Dec 5 - Demanding a permanent solution to the problems of flood and erosion and criticising the apathetic attitude of both the Central and State governments towards the issue of flood-induced erosion, the Tinsukia district committee of Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) staged a dharna in front of the Deputy Commissioner�s office complex here recently.

According to the protesters, the committee has been demanding a permanent solution to the perennial flood-induced erosion problem in the Dhola-Hatighuli, Kordoiguri, Baghjan, Dirak-Sumoni, Dibru-Saikhowa National Park and Sadiya in Tinsukia district.

The protesters felt that the big river dams coming up in the upstream of the rivers are nothing but veritable �water bombs� which have become a threat to the people of the district. The AJYCP activists threatened that if their demands are not fulfilled, then it would undertake their agitational programme more vigorously.
