Securing concrete houses for dalits of Hullaspur

“For 60 years I have been living here and there is no sign of a house or a colony,” says Sita Devi, a resident of a Dalit suburb in Hullaspur village of Uttar Pradesh. The Housing and Development Board of India’s most populous state has failed 30 families, including that of Sita Devi, in this make-shift suburb. Community Correspondent Gayatri’s report reveals that in the monsoon season, the houses collapse and are re-built by the residents. It has been going on for years.
“Gram Pradhan visited the area and they have promised to start building the houses soon” Gayatri told VV in mid-September.

Call for Action: To make sure that the Dalit residents in Hullaspur get a permanent housing colony, you can call Manoj Mishra, Gram Pradhan of Hullaspur at +91-9838132184
