25 families will now get their ration at the nearest Gram Panchayat
“Our village has 25 families and all these families have to climb uphill around 16 kms for two and a half hours to reach ration shop for food grains. And often while returning, they have to walk nearly 35 kms on a dilapidated pathway, cross rivers, nala, and go through various inconveniences just to reach home after collecting ration from the shop. I request Chief Minister to connect all these families of the village to the ration shop of nearest panchayat Chhuidih, so that they may collect ration conveniently without having to travel afar”, said Harilal, a resident of Gadaipara. Responding to his demands at once, Chief Minister directed the officials concerned to make necessary arrangements so that the families of Gadaipara village may collect ration from the shop situated in the nearest Gram Panchayat of Chhuidih.
Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel is touring various assembly constituencies to directly connect with people and to review the implementation of government schemes on the ground. In the same sequence, Chief Minister visited village Kudargarh of Bhatgaon assembly constituency in Surajpur district on May 7, where at the Chaupal the aforementioned problem came to light. Taking immediate action on their demand, Chief Minister gave instructions to the officials concerned and within six days, arrangements have been made to provide these 25 families of Kudargarh food grains from the ration shop of village Chhuidih.
Now people of Kudargarh village will no longer have to climb uphill or cross rivers-rocky pathways to collect food grains from a distant ration shop. They have now been connected to the ration shop in the nearby gram panchayat of Chhuidih, so that they may collect the ration conveniently. Chief Minister had given instructions to make this arrangement on May 7 and by May 13, the beneficiaries were enlisted at the shop of village Chhuidih.
