300 Families Living in Darkness

Dharanidhar Sethi, a resident of Patpura village, Kujang block, Odisha has spent a better part of his life living without electricity.

The Government of Odisha is meant to provide electricity—at least 1 bulb and 1 fan– to each family living below the poverty line.

Three years after this electrification scheme of the government was announced, the intended beneficiaries continue to live without electricity. Come evening the 300 families living in the area are plunged into darkness.

Dharanidhar tells community correspondent Anupama Das that his two sons failed their exams as they could not study by the feeble light of a kerosene lamp.

They have now been forced to leave the village to pursue their studies elsewhere—a costly affair.

Call to action: Please call Mr Rabi Narayan Singh, Assistant Engineer of Kujang Block on 9437555801 and pressurise him to provide these 300 families electricity.
