The Ward Chairman also explained how landslide and sinking has affected the colony compelling many families to evacuate. He also requested the SP to disseminate the suffering of the colony to the authority and suggested for complete shifting of the colony with the assistance and support of the Government.  He also appreciated the District Administration and the DEF, Mon for their relief, support and concern shown to the people of Tanlao ward in times of such disaster.
