A tragic scene was witnessed in Ankapur (ଅନକାପୁର) village under Boden block of Nuapada district. The husband and wife of a family have taken shelter in other people’s home because their house has been completely demolished.
According to the information, Suraj Lakra (husband) belongs to a poor family. He works as a daily labourer. If he found some work to do, then they will get some food or the family will have to sleep on an empty stomach.
In the last few years, his house has been completely demolished. So his whole family has to take shelter in other people’s house. His wife Nisha Lakra is also acting as labour. As per the sources, the family doesn’t have any ration card as well.
The villagers have been asked to provide a ration card and a house under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna to the family. Even though they have applied several times, they have not been able to get a house from the government so far,” the family said.
