"Migrants from Nyaung Binthar Village moved to the Valleys of the Upper Nyaung Binthar Creek , and adding its settle-ups to other villages vicinity."
Migrants from Sule Gone Village bought some land from Bogone Village Tract, facing livelihood dilemma of disappearance of plantations which they conducted on new sediment acres by erosion.
