Slush Road Makes Life Difficult for Odisha Village

Around 6 villages are stuck in the mud because the local Sarpanch has been refusing to take advantage of existing government schemes and construct a road for the people. In Solbandh village of District Nuapada in Odisha, lack of a proper road is adding to the people’s discontent. Students have to trudge through mud everyday to make it to school. The main market, the highway, the nearest hospital – all have to be accessed by tip-toeing through the slush. In times of crisis, the discomfort turns acute. If one is pregnant or sick, she/he has to be carried over the slippery road.

The people are demanding change.

Call to Action: Call the Sarpanch Mr. Simanchal Nihaljee on +919018935569 and ask him to get a pucca road constructed through his village.
