The erosion started in the Rapti river due to the decrease in the water level in Balrampur.
The Rapti river flows through the Kalyanpur area in Balrampur. Which is being cut continuously. When the Rapti river was in spate, even the village was filled with water. Now the water level of the river is decreasing due to which the river is cutting rapidly on the banks. Officials are busy displacing the villagers to safer places.
Even today there is no electricity, water connection in the village
The condition of Kalyanpur village of Sadar development block has become worse. There is no proper arrangement of electricity and water here. The people here are still illiterate. A temple and a school built in the village were submerged in water during last year’s floods. The situation is still the same today. Where there used to be a village, now the water has filled it. People are forced to live by making mud and thatched houses by migrating to the banks of the river.
what did the villagers say
Ram Ujagar Yadav, who lives here, says that he had donated his one bigha of land to build a government school. On which a primary school was also built, but in the floods of last year, the school was washed away. We thought that we may have remained illiterate but our children would go ahead by reading and writing.
MLA and administrative officers had arrived
Sadar MLA Paltu Ram and all the administrative officials went to the outside of this village and took stock of the village and soon talked about displacing the villagers by giving them land at some other place. Along with this, the villagers were given ration to eat and all the necessities. So that somehow he can live his life for some days.
MLA gave instructions to officials
Sadar MLA Paltu Ram told that the condition of the entire village is very bad. Where there used to be a village, now there is water. Somehow the villagers are living by building houses nearby. We have informed the government about their problem. Soon the process of their replacement will also start. The local authorities have been ordered to find suitable land and displace them at the earliest. So that they do not have to bear the brunt of floods again and again.
