Jamshedpur, Feb 23: In an innovative way to lend support in the development of society, District Legal Services Authority’s (DLSA) East Singhbhum unit has adopted village.
The DLSA has identified a remote village in Bodam block in Patamda for improving the quality of life of the people.
Located in the foothill of Dalma, the village in question is Konkadasa, about eight-kms-away from the Bodam block and about 40 kms away from the heart of the city.
Revealing about the move DLSA secretary BK Lal said that they have adopted the village for making the villagers to get the minimum facility from which they are still deprived of.
DLSA was known for providing legal relief to the poor litigants, free legal assistance to the convicts having no sound financial background and things like these , but the legal body will be known for lending help for development.
“It is an innovative step and we want to make it successful. A team of DLSA visited the Konkadasa a week ago and found that several villagers who are leading a life without amenities. Their houses are into the trunk of trees as they do not have their own house. Though most of the families have thatched houses, but they have to remain in fear of getting killed by the wild elephants and other wild animals. The villagers are not aware about the electricity, not to speak about the provision of LPG gas and stove and pucca houses being provided under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana elsewhere,” said the official.
DLSA will lend its help in motivating the villagers to lead a prosperous life.
