DIYUN, AUG 21: The actual Monsoon is still 2 months away but the Noa Dihing has already started its menace! Once again this Pagala(mad) River has brought sorrow and misery not only for the Chakmas but all tribes along the rivers especially Namsai and Diyun Circle. Today, the furious Dihing have destructed the safety net of Dumpani village; the one and only embankment built in 2013, sanctioned by the then CM Nabam Tuki. Thus, the river have change its course of flow and all adjacent villages such as Udaipur, Dumpather is in grave danger now.
Today, a part of the village Dumpani become an island and more than 30 families were badly effected. The Diyun administration is doing its best but due to limited resources even the administration is helpless. Women and children are evacuated and are given shelters in different a households of the villages and also in the village club. Volunteers and government administration have provided relief materials such as food, candles, water etc. Many of the poor villagers have already loss their sources of livelihood: ripen crops, fishery ponds and plantation. The local MLA have appealed the CM for immediate measures including embankments! We hope like Nabam Tuki our generous Kalikho Pul will also do something!!!
