Villagers travel for almost five km every day to fetch water for their daily needs. With a population of 3,000, most people in this village are either farm labourers or petty traders.
The schemes launched by both the Central and the State governments have failed to reach the villagers despite many attempts and complaints.
"We have to walk till Uttar Pradesh border to get water. Our children can't go to school as all their time goes in fetching water. Due to non-availability of drinking water, womenfolk of the village walk five km every day through forest road to collect water," locals told ANI.
"The district administration too has ignored our problems for the last three years," locals added.
