Create Brahmaputra River Valley Authority: Tarun Gogoi to PM Modi

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi Sunday sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intervention for creation of the proposed Brahmaputra River Valley Authority (BRVA) by revamping the existing Brahmaputra Board. 

The chief minister, in a letter to Modi, said the creation of the BRVA was of paramount importance to tackle the perpetual flood and erosion problem and water-related hazards in Assam and the northeast region as a whole. 

"We are facing formidable challenges in flood and erosion management sector due to non-implementation of integrated water resources management of the complex Brahmaputra river system since long," Gogoi said.
