Saryu river rose 14 cm in eight hours

There was no water at Ballia’s Chandpur gauge till Sunday evening. The gauge started moving on Monday. The water level of the river was 56.19 meters at 8 am on Monday which reached 56.33 meters at 4 pm. The water level of the river increased rapidly by 14 cm within eight hours. That is, the speed of the river’s rise is about two and a quarter centimeters per hour.

The fast flow of the river is like a dagger which has engulfed hundreds of acres of agricultural land from Sultanpur to Bhojpurwa in Bansdih tehsil area of โ€‹โ€‹Ballia. This is continuing unabated. To stop the erosion of the river, barriers were built in front of villages like Renghan, Rampur Nambari etc. but no one paid attention from Sultanpur to Bhojpurwa. The erosion of the river stream continues in this area.

Seeing the water level of the Saryu river rising, the Deputy District Magistrate arrived to investigate.
