Follow up : Non working handpump : Officer non responsive

Priyanka Borpujari from Mumbai says she called up the Block officer Balwant Singh following up the complaint for the non working hand pump from 7 months from Seema of District Rewa Madhya Pradesh. The message was recorded in Swara couple of days back. But the officer washed his hands off the matter, and said he could only ask the Panchayat officer, as the handpump had been out of order for seven months and why no one had complained earlier.
