Residents of this village wade through slush and sewage to travel anywhere. There are no provisions for a drainage system here which means all the dirty water from various pipelines converges on the main road.
Upon talking to the Village Head, Community Correspondent Gayatri was told that no mapping has been done so far for the drains and that when funds have been allotted in past, some residents did not allow drains to be built as they went past their houses.
Gayatri however has come back with a promise that the drains will be built as soon as funds are allotted.
Call to Action: Please call the Village Head on 09838132184 and ask him to help fix the road immediately.
