DEMOW, June 20: Continuous heavy rainfall over the past few days has caused the water level of Dehing and Desang rivers to rise significantly.
As a result, the lower portion of a sluice gate connected to the Demow River embankment in the historic Dhai Ali Samarajan has become waterlogged on Sunday evening. This has led to the inundation of Samarajan Halmari, Saragua Grant, Purasumani, Jiyamari, Palengi, Araltoli villages. Local residents immediately informed the deputy commissioner of Sivasagar district about the affected sluice gate on Sunday night.
On Monday, Aditya Vikram Yadav, deputy commissioner of Sivasagar district, conducted an inspection of the Dhai Ali Sluice Gate and directed the relevant department to expedite the repairs. Subsequently, the deputy commissioner also assessed the erosion near the Akhoiphutia Bridge on the PWD Department Road. Taking note of the situation, the deputy commissioner of Sivasagar district is actively monitoring the erosion and has instructed the PWD department and Water Resource department to take necessary measures.
