Queueing up for Widow Pensions

IndiaUnheard Community Correspondent Anupama reports on a story of a widow being denied her pension under the Madhu Babu pension scheme. This video is from Patakura panchayat in Odisha.

Junirani lost her husband three years ago and has since taken on the responsibility of caring for her son and elderly in-laws. She gets by on a small salary as a shop assistant but it isn’t enough for all her needs.

Call to Action: Please call Rajkishor Panda, Block Development Officer on 9438248165 phone number and ask him to release pension of Junirani and other widows.
