The students are forced to skip school due to water stagnations on the road. They also have to forego the facility of 108 ambulance. Even the locals cannot get private vehicles to go to local hospital as vehicles cannot enter the locality.

Local BJP leaders have expressed distress that despite their several representations requesting water supply and CC road to District Collector Champalal, JC Ashok Kumar and DRDO Shankar, the administration has failed to respond.

The leaders criticised the State government for neglecting its assurance of developing dalit areas during its last two-and-half-year rule. The dalit residents have appealed to the administration to provide them the two basic facilities.
