If Govt helps us with a pump on our pond our youth will not have to migrate...

Manendra Kol, a Kol adivasi from Mohapathar village in Bada Chhukaria panchayat in Kathikund block of Dukma district in Jharkhand is telling in his Kol language that youth from his village need to go to big cities in search of work to do dangerous works like making high rise buildings. If Govt make lift irrigation in a pond then they can do farming and wont need to migrate. Due to lack of electricity children also can not study in evening. KolJi@8002264701
