Embankment should be protected through maintenance: GOC Razzak


GAIBANDHA, Aug 21, 2017 (BSS)- General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Rangpur area of Bangladesh Army Major General Mashud Razzak today said flood control embankment along the Karatoa river should be protected through proper maintenance and regular supervision activities.

He was visiting the Karatoa Flood Control Embankment at Nayanpur village under Kishorgari union of Palashbari upazila here this noon.

As the river lost its navigability, the dredging work should be done to check the overflow of the river water during the monsoon, said Mashud Razzak.

He also urged the concerned to be alert so that none could make sabotage through cutting the embankment to create untold sufferings of the common people of the upazila.
