The floods in Bhagalpur have once again created a furore. The water of the Ganges has entered many villages.

Ganga has once again assumed a formidable form in Bihar. Many areas of Bhagalpur district have been submerged. At the same time, there has been an outcry due to erosion in many areas. The people who came under the JD of erosion are forced to leave their homes and doors and migrate to a safe place. At the same time, every day now people are forced to see their homes and houses merging in the Ganges in front of their eyes. There is also resentment among the villagers that the administration is not fully cooperating to save them from this natural havoc that fell on them for the last few days.

Houses falling every day in English village

Heavy erosion is taking place on the banks of the Ganges in English village under Sabour block of Bhagalpur district. Every day the houses are falling down in the Ganges. People are compelled to see the house built with the earnings of blood and sweat in the river in front of their eyes. On seeing another house on Thursday, it got absorbed in the Ganges. There is an atmosphere of fear among the people and even at night people are still waking up and spending time.

Ganga's fury continues
