Barasat, Aug. 26: Fear of another catastrophe looms, the embankment of Bidyadhar river in the village Machibhanga, was going to reconstruct on war footing by the effort of Kakali Ghosh Dastidar, MP Barasat.

Every year during full-moon high tides, the embankments get damaged and the saline water enters the human habitation, causing serious damage to agricultural fields. During the monsoon, continuous rainfall has weakened the embankments in this area. The villagers fear that the embankments may be washed away if not properly reconstructed and maintained.
