Villagers blocked the road for three hours demanding water supply, after getting assurance the jam was removed

Representative, Chitra. The villagers of Bhawanipur, a displaced village located at Chitra Colliery, demonstrated demanding regular water supply in the village. The villagers, under the leadership of chief’s representative Sujit Rajak, blocked the road from Damgarha mine to OB dump for about three hours. During this, the protesters demonstrated against the colliery management and raised slogans and expressed their displeasure. Due to road blockage, the vehicles of the outsourcing company laden with OB were stopped for a long time. Apart from this, it also affected other vehicles engaged in other works in the colliery. The work of vehicle drivers involved in coal production was also affected. In this regard, Chitra Mukhiya representative Sujit Rajak said that the colliery management has been giving only assurance for many months that water will be supplied to the village pond through pipeline. But till date the concerned department officials have not taken any initiative, due to which the villagers are facing huge difficulties. Said that dozens of water tankers run in every village for water supply under outsourcing and lakhs are also spent in the name of water supply system. But needy people do not get water through tankers on time. Said that once the system is improved, traffic will be allowed through this route.

Colliery General Manager assured to solve the problem

On the other hand, as soon as the information was received, Colliery General Manager AK Anand, Agent Umesh Prasad Chaudhary, E&M Engineer Rakesh Ranjan, Manager Mrityunjay Chaudhary reached the spot and after a long discussion, the General Manager assured that within two months the mine will be connected to the village. Water supply will be done regularly in the pond. Said that water will also be supplied regularly through tankers. After getting the assurance, the villagers removed the road block. Jairam Rajak, Pankaj Rai, Sonu Yadav, Madan Rai, Ranjit Rajak, Mukesh Mandal, Jawahar Rai, Sudhir Rai, Biru Rai, Suraj Rajak, Vikas Rai, Kanhaiya Rajak, Raja Rajak and other villagers were present on the occasion.
