The reports say that this video is of Tintanga Diara of Rangara block in Bhagalpur district, where in the last 8 days about 12 houses have been washed away in erosion. Here in the last two days, about 5 houses have been washed away in the Ganges. This problem has been persistent in Bhagalpur district for many years.
If the villagers are to be believed, the erosion is going on for 4 to 5 months. However, the erosion had come to a halt for the past one month. But once again due to the rise in the water level of the Ganges, erosion is happening fast. Even now there are many such houses which are standing on the verge of eroding and getting washed away in the Ganges.
Administration assures compensation to victims
On this matter, CO Ashish Kumar said that people whose houses have been washed away in water will be compensated soon. Once their paperwork is finished, they will get the required compensation. At the same time, he said that efforts are being made to stop such incidents from happening in the future.
Residents of numerous Bhagalpur villages destroyed their homes earlier this year in June on their own and fled the region as they observed severe soil erosion along the Kosi river’s banks.
According to a study by a research team, the transboundary Himalayan river basins have significant rates of erosion that are changing the region’s hydrology and increasing its flooding.
