Nandlal Yadav is calling from Sevra village in Vishrampur block of Palamu district in Jharkhand to say thanks. He says in their village a hand pump was dug last year by Govt but they left the work half way. People contributed to complete the work but still officers did not show interest. Then they recorded a message on CGnet Swara and when listeners put pressure on officers the same officers have now completed the work. Please continue to put pressure on officers to help poor people, he says. Nandlal@9534006684

Local officers were asking for bribe to make our ration cards. We did lots of movement for it but nothing happened. Then we came to know about CGnet Swara in June and recorded a message.
