On Monday night, 23 August, a huge erosion occurred at Wapda embankment on the bank of Dhaki river in front of Khona Mollah’s house in Pankhali union. Within moments, 80 percent of the 100-foot area of the main dam had broken into the Dhaki River. Dakop Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mintu Biswas visited the spot on Tuesday morning. He took the initiative to build an alternative ring dam behind the broken dam to address the situation by allocating 2 tons of rice.
Upazila Project Implementation Officer Sheikh Abdul Quader, Pankhali UP Chairman Sheikh Abdul Quader and other people’s representatives were present at the time. The locals are terrified by the horror of the demolition. Aman seeks immediate intervention of the Water Development Board in the construction of the broken dam to protect it from massive damage during the monsoon season and to protect the houses.
