The call was received very well by locals and total of 103 familes worked for 10 days and repaired all irrigational nalas and boundary walls around majority of houses.
As a reward to their hardwork and to encourage more such intiatives in the area all families were distributed with household essentials and ration packets. Each packet contained : Flour -10 Kg, Refined Oil -01 Kg, Salt – 01 Kg, Pulses – 01 Kg, Condiments -500 Gm, Soaps -08, Umbrella -01, Plastic Poly Cover – 01
All panchayat members and locals were very appreciative of such unique efforts and every one was of opinion that efforts like this will certainly motivates villagers to be self-dependent in resolving most of the local problems of the village.
