Electric dept demand 20,000 for connection, We offered 10, They not happy...

Jayant Rangari is calling from Tariapara, Pod village,Antagarh block Kanker district in Chhattisgarh. He says this village 10 kms from the block headquarter has no electricity connection. When villagers went to Rajiv Gandhi electrification officials they demanded Rs 20,000. When villagers offered Rs 10,000 it was denied. Village has one hand pump which throws water with iron. So villagers are forced to drink dirty water. Pls call SDM at 9406111751. Jayant@9827009515
