JAMUGURIHAT: Erosion Effected Villages in Assam: The erosion caused by the Bordikorai River to the north of Jamugurihat has posed serious threat to 20 adjoining villages of the greater Bordikorai area, including Bordikorai, Ajarguri, Rai Gaon, Bamuni Pam, Khakan Basti, Gorhbil, Batamari, Marisuti, Thakurbari, Bhanuchok, Garipam and Bhanuchook.
The existence of nearly 20 villages of the Bordikorai area is on the verge of extinction. The Dikorai River that originates from the hills of neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh, has engulfed a large area by washing away the riverside soil. The picnic spot Nameri Bordikorai Ghat is on the verge of extinction. A section of the picnic spot has been hit by erosion.
Nameri National Park is an important tourist spot. The Bordikorai Ghat, besides the Nameri National Park, attracts a large number of picnickers in the months of January and February every year. The local people have urged the new government to take necessary steps to save these villages from the threat of extinction.
