Kasganj: Ganga’s fierce form is visible, dam made at a cost of Rs. 3.5 crores submerged

Kasganj, Amrit Vichar. Mother Ganga’s fierce form has been seen once again in Baroana village of Patiyali tehsil. The Geo Bag Dam built at a cost of three and a half crores is already sinking like a paper boat in the erosion due to the rise in water level in the Ganges. 9 Geo Bags of the new dam got submerged in water due to erosion.

After the devastation caused by the flood in Baroana last year, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited the village and took stock of the situation. On the instructions of the Chief Minister, a plan was made by the Irrigation Department to build a dam to stop erosion along the village’s population during the flood. After which a new dam with 105 Geo Bags was built along the banks of the old dam in the north direction of the village at a cost of three and a half crores to stop the erosion caused by the Ganges’ current. Which could not stand even for two days in front of the fierce form of Ganga. 9 Geo Bags of the dam got submerged in water due to erosion and the flood water reached near the village’s population and started eroding. Due to which the entire flood prevention management of the administration has been in vain. On the other hand, the local people are in panic after seeing the fierce form of Ganga. The officers of the irrigation department are camping in the village at night and are engaged in rescue work to stop erosion.

Questions raised on the quality of the dam

The dam constructed in Barona this year to stop erosion is on the verge of submerging in water even before the flood. This condition of the new dam itself is raising questions on its quality. Regarding the irregularities in the construction of the dam built at a cost of crores of rupees, SP spokesperson Abdul Hafiz Gandhi and the villagers have accused it of being built against the standard by corruption.
