Brahmaputra erosion takes serious turn

With the rise of water level in Brahmaputra River, erosion has taken serious turn in Goghat area under Kamarjani union of Gaibandha Sadar Upazila in recent days.

According to sources, due to the rise of the water level in last few days the river intensified its erosion in Goghat and its neighboring areas of the union making the river basin people more worried about their homestead and arable land.

Last two days, a total of 70 families living on the bank of the river in Goghat areas lost their homestead due to unabated erosion and vast tracts of arable land were also devoured by the river, the locals sources said.

Besides, an academic building of Kalmu FN Government Primary School, a temple and a mosque of the area had also been devoured by the river in last few days, said Saddam Hossain Paban, a local social worker.

Apart from it, hundreds of families living on the river bank are in serious panic and anxiety as their homesteads including the standing crops land might be eroded any time, said Abdus Salam Jakir, chairman of Kamarjani Union Parishad, according to BSS.
