Shri Ganga Nagar. Due to the heavy monsoon rains in North India, the Ghaggar river passing through Sriganganagar and Hanumangarh districts has taken a fierce form. Last Sunday night, the village was evacuated due to breaking of dam in village Rangmahal, adjacent to Suratgarh. On the other hand, at around 1 o’clock on Monday night, there was an erosion in the embankment of Ghagghar river between Bhairupura village, Silvani and Amarpura. The work of bridging the dam is going on with the help of the administration and the local people.

Hundreds of bighas of land have been submerged due to breaking of dam in 13 GB and 22 GB of Jaitsar. Due to breaking of dam in 13 GB, the connection of 11 Joyianwali with the main road has been lost. Due to the ever-increasing water level, the Ghaggar river is at its highest peak in three decades. The arrival of excess water in the Ghagghar river passing through Suratgarh in the district and passing through Anupgarh to Pakistan has created a furore these days.

Administration working on alert mode
Sriganganagar District Collector Anshdeep told that the administration was already alert about the breaking of dams in the downstream area of ​​Ghaggar river. The work of tying and strengthening all the dams is going on continuously with the help of local villagers. At the same time, he said that the situation in Sriganganagar district is under control and there has been no loss of life here. The collector has expressed hope that the water level of Ghaggar river is likely to decrease in the coming days. The administration has appealed to be careful in the Ghaggar flow area.

Hanumangarh Collector had called a meeting
The water level of the Ghaggar river is increasing due to continuous release of large amount of water from Otu Head in Haryana. Because of which there is a danger of flood in districts like Sriganganagar and Hanumangarh. In view of the danger of flood, Hanumangarh Collector Rukmani Riar had called a meeting of all political-social organizations of the district on Saturday. In the meeting, an appeal was made by the Collector to all the organizations for help in the Ghaggar flow area. At present, all the necessary departments including the Water Resources Department have been alerted.
