The Govindasi-Valkutia-Chituliapara link road has been broken at Bhuyapur in Tangail due to the Yamuna river. As a result, about 15 thousand people of three-four villages have suffered. On Saturday (July 6) morning, the road collapsed due to the strong flow of water.

Meanwhile, due to the collapse of the road, water is entering several other areas including Hupapara, Govindasi, Sthalkashi, Ruhuli, Koera. As a result, the roads in the lower areas of these areas have sunk. In the meantime, vegetable and crop fields have been submerged in water in Koera area.

Besides, there are 3 electricity transformers next to the broken part. As a result, there is a danger of them breaking and falling into the water at any moment.
