Mukti has started raising the embankment over an area of about 100 meters along the banks of the river Thakuran to prevent saline water from entering the village due to heavy rains in Purba Sridharpur. From 14th August heavy rain started in Sundarban. Low lands are flooding by the inception of the saline water. After the beginning of low tide in the river, when the river water recedes from 22nd August, the river embankment is being raised by cutting the soil from the riverside area and dumping it over the river embankment.
Raising the embankments early in the monsoon would save villages and crop fields from damage. 13 workers are working to reamer the river embankment.
