People in Bhathiagarh of Damoh district, Madhya Pradesh, are troubled by the lack of proper housing. The shaky roofs and collapsing beams are a constant danger, add to that an incessantly leaking ceiling in the monsoon. VV-PACS Correspondent Arti reports.
There are close 165 people in the village who are eligible for housing under the government sponsored Indira Awas Yojana (scheme). All have submitted their applications but not one has heard from the District Collector on the matter.
Luxmi bai, one of the residents of the village submitted her request 5 years ago and has since been knocking on various doors to get the work on her house started. The only response she gets is that her name is not on the list which shows her status as a person licing below poverty line.
Proper housing is a fundamental right that all citizens of India should have.
To help them call the Block Officer, Damoh District on this number 9425655625.
Daily wage labourers and small vendors are struggling to make ends meet.
