Impact: We got a hand pump in our weekly market after Swara report, thanks...

We have a new weekly market in Polmi in Pandaria block of Kabirdham district in Chhattisgarh where there was no hand pump so people used to walk a kilometer to get water from a year. Then I reported it on CGnet says Naresh Bunkar and now I am glad to report that a hand pump was dug couple of months back and people coming to weekly market get drinking water in the market. He wants to thank listeners of CGnet and officers of PHE department for helping people. Bunkar@8720822286

Impact: Thanks to your calls we will have 8 common toilets in our colony soon...

I am Dalit and I live in Dalit basti. Construction of 8 common toilets in our area was not completed for long and all of us were suffering. When we recorded message on CGnet Swara I got call from officers that we are bringing bad name to district and our message was wrong. But after inspection it was found to be true and the construction work has again started and is about to be finished. I want to thank from my side and from my community’s side to all from CGnet who called officers. Arti@9993358662
