Manual scavengers not allowed to fetch water, walk on street in Chitrakoot UP

My name is Harishchandra Deepankar. I am calling from Chitrakoot district in Uttar Pradesh. I work in Rashtriya Garima Abhiyan with manual scavangers to encourage them to stop this work. In my district in Dwarkapuri area manual scavengers are not allowed to enter the area and walk on streets. In some areas they are not allowed to collect water from wells and they need to walk long distance to fetch water. For more Deepankar Ji can be reached at 08718928718
