They said that besides there is no proper road connectivity to the area due to which they are suffering.
They said that since 40 years, they have been demanding construction of three kilometer road to the area but nothing has been done.
The locals said that that they are forced to fetch all their essential commodities on their backs as no vehicle is able to come to the village.
They added that during medical emergencies people are left with no other option than to carry the patients on their shoulders.
Locals said that they have brought all these issues in notice of higher ups several times but to no avail.
They said that area has been neglected since last 70 years and they don’t have any hope now as since decades the promises made to them are proving hoax.
