District administration of Lakhimpur directs eviction drive

Lakhimpur: The Lakhimpur district administration directed an eviction drive on October 5, 2021. The drive was carried out to remove the unauthorized encroachers upon the bank of the Gariajan, which is flowing through North Lakhimpur town.

In association with district administration, the North Lakhimpur Municipal Board (NLMB) conducted the drive at a four hundred meter range on the east bank of the water body.

The Gariajan has played a significant part in discharging the water from North Lakhimpur town. With about fifty meters wide basin, the reservoir body has reached almost a four-kilometer-long area of the town in its passage.

However, concerning its width, the range of the water body is narrowing slowly due to the aggression of a part of local people, business establishments, and suspicious individuals.

Consequently, the water body has dropped its water discharging volume making artificial floods in a wide area of the town. Under such conditions, various organizations have asked the district administration to remove the unlawful encroachers.

Moreover, Swachh Bharat Mission Lakhimpur District Brand Ambassador Ranjit Kakati recommended that the district administration and the NLMB remove the illegal encroachers, clean the water body, and enhance its banks’.

Presently, the water body has become much polluted due to the dumping of plastic wastages and extra trash by some local communities and commercial establishments.
