No old age pension from 2 years, Anganwadi center gives food once a month!

My name is Mukesh Verma. Today our Land Rights Cycle Yatra in Jaba block of Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh has reached Baraula village where I met Devkali Rawat a 70 year old lady who has not got her pension from last 2 years. Here no old is getting pension. Devkali Ji is not able to work and she used to beg. Now villagers also have stopped supporting her. Here anganvadi center gives food once a month. Adivasis have no land and wander around whole day in search of labor work. For more Mukesh Ji can be reached at 09179491927
