In their memorandum addressed to the Deputy Commissioner of Tinsukia and Circle Officer of Doomdooma Revenue Circle with copies to the Chief Minister and Water Resources Minister, Assam it was stated that since 1992 Anantanala, through which the tributary Dibang is flowing south west, caused immense harm as it had already eroded away 20 villages rendering thousands of people homeless.
Now due to its erosion in villages like Bishnupur, Tamuli, Gariyating more than hundred families lost their hearth and home. In their memorandum while demanding proper rehabilitation of the flood affected people and allotment of land pattas to them, they also demanded permanent solution of the flood and erosion problem of the entire area extending from Hatighuli- Dholla to Baghjan-Digulturrang via Kordoiguri. For that they demanded immediate release of Rs 25 crores erosion protection measures declared by former Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal at Baghjan and immediate starting of Rs 4 Crore erosion protection measures for which foundation stone was laid at Baghjan by MP Pradan Baruah. The Moran ethnic bodies also urged the government to take appropriate measures for protection of historic Shri Shri Mayamora Tipuk- Simaluguri Brajrapur Xatra, the half of which premises had already been eroded away by Anantanala.
