Gogoi proposes dredging corp

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Monday proposed a Dredging Corporation to firmly deal with the perennial flood and erosion problems in the state.

In his budget speech, Gogoi said that this will be apart from recommendations for 41 Centre-funded schemes worth Rs 1,387 crore.

He said,” in view of the critical erosion problem, channelisation of River Brahmaputra, Barak and its tributaries and reclamation of lost land has become highly necessary. I propose to set up a Dredging Corporation for this purpose."
