VV Correspondent’s Efforts Ensure 250 Musahars Get Regular Water | Uttar Pradesh


In the Chandrapura village of Uttar Pradesh's Bhadohi district, 250 Musahars were not able to get drinking water as the handpump in their neighbourhood wasn't working. If they tried to fetch water from other neighbourhoods, they would be chased away owing to their caste.

Video Volunteers Community Correspondent Shabnam Varanasi took cognisance of this and decided to help the community. She worked with the community and the local sarpanch to get their handpump fixed. The sarpanch, Kanshlal Saroj also helped deploy the material and labourers required to fix the handpump.
