Adivasis drinking dirty water, Village head uses Govt borewell for his brick kiln...

Around 60-70 Adivasi families live in Teghadda area of Sahjatpura gram panchayat of Batiagarh block in Damoh district in Madhya Pradesh where there is only one working hand pump which is throwing coloured dirty water but people are forced to drink it. There is a Govt deep tube well there but influential village head is using it for irrigating his field and in his brick kiln. A complaint to CM helpline ( no 1842600) more than a month back has not helped. Please call PHE officer@9098665262 to help. Upendra Pathak@9993358662
