NORTH LAKHIMPUR, Oct 3: Unabated erosion caused by the Brahmaputra, Subansiri and Dikrong rivers has affected thousands of villagers at Bihpuria and Narayanpur in Lakhimpur district.
At Botumchuk under Badati-Jamuguri Gaon Panchayat of Bihpuria, massive erosion by the Subansiri has made life miserable for hundreds of families. The people of this area are now passing sleepless nights as the river is fast moving towards new areas.
At Narayanpur, large-scale erosion by the Brahmaputra has displaced twenty families, forcing them to take shelter in a school. The erosion is felt mostly in the Banmukh area under Dakshin Narayanpur Gaon Panchayat.
