Elephants broke our houses, Govt giving very little compensation, pls call officers...

My name is Jeetan Ram. I am a Pahadi Korwa adivasi. I am calling from Upar Salkheta village, panchayat Gitkalo, block Dharmajaigarh district Raigarh Chhattisgarh. Elephants destroyed 19 houses in my village. Around 100 houses were destroyed in half a dozen villages nearby. We are living in different places now. Children can’t go to school. Forest dept is giving very little compensation. You are requested to call Collector@94255-32380 to help us get a decent compensation so we can start our lives again. Jeetan@8959289653
