Impact: Officials pay NREGA wages due from 2 years day after Swara report

Rakesh Rai is calling from Pampapur village in Ambikapur block in Surguja district in Chhattisgarh. He says day before I had reported on Swara that hundreds of people here are waiting for their NREGA wages from more than 2 years. After hearing the message yesterday officials came to village and have made payments. Today they were supposed to be back to pay the rest but there is no sign of them and people are waiting.
