Shambu Prasad Bhatt, a local social worker from Vijaynagar village was sharing that the roads connecting  the villages are completely damaged and the local administration  along with the civil society organisations should work immediately towards restoring the same.

The road connecting her village with the market was completely washed away. She now needs to travel 10kms everyday through difficult hilly terrains to collect basic amenities. This old lady is differently abled (dumb) but through her gestures she conveyed her gratitude when the team made an effort to strike a conversation to understand her issues.
