On 27th February 2014 a terrible storm brought down the electricity poles in Sarauli village. There has been no electricity in the village since and the electricity board has been ignoring the issue. Children’s studies are being affected especially during the exam period. We need your help to put pressure on the Electricity Department NOW:
