“The tall claims of the government about the development and infrastructure are evident. Hundreds of households have no electricity and good roads and infrastructure is also a dream,” a villager said. The people of the area use solar-powered lanterns for lighting their houses. "Our children are suffering the most as their studies are affected," another villager said.
They added that most of the times they choose not to study during night hours due to the lack of lighting facility. Residents said after repeated pleas, the government finally provided them solar lights seven months back.
But in harsh winters, people in this village have to return to 'dark ages' as they can't recharge their lanterns in the absence of solar light. "Government has only made promises and done nothing to alleviate our problems," a villager said.
