Thousands of residents of villages located on both sides of Left Bank Outfall Drain (LBOD) have voluntarily evacuated their homes and those left behind are passing sleepless nights as deputy commissioner’s office has issued a high alert that the drain may develop breach at any moment.

The administrative order directed the residents living in low-lying areas to shift to safe places without further delay, and asked the authorities concerned to remain vigilant.The mega drain remains vulnerable as the irrigation department and SIDA have failed to rehabilitate its vulnerable points.
