This Naxal affected village in Jharkhand is ignored both by the system as well as the government. The plight is as such that the villagers are driven to drink water out of sewage pipes. In the Naxal affected area of Dumriya, government services in Palsabni village have been suspended. There are no roads to lead your way out of the village, if one has to go out, they have to cross three high drains. Both electricity and water have been suspended. The villagers have neither adhaar nor ration cards.
The villagers, making do with what they have, survive off the water from sewage pipes. With the monsoon setting in, heavy rains have cut off all possible communications of the village, with the world. However, the locals have managed to build a makeshift bridge out of stone across one of the high drains. Although, they remain stranded as there are two more such drains to be crossed to go out of the village.
This village with 1800 voters still awaits any help from the state government. The problem has yet not been addressed by the Chief Minister Raghubar Das. With the worsening situation, the villagers still hope for relief.
