In 2014, Pipra Maaf hamlet was adopted by the local lawmaker to transform it into a ‘model village’ under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Aadarsh Gram Yojna’ launched with much fanfare.
The residents claims that all promises turn hallow and that electricity, roads and toilets are still a distant dream. The villagers also informed that the lawmaker has not shown up after the initial fanfare and they feel ‘abandoned’.
Residents say they lack toilet facilities, electricity and well laid roads.
Frustrated by the absence of their lawmaker who adopted the village in November 2014, villagers have put up posters saying that the MP is missing.
The lawmaker Pushpendra Singh Chandel’s office denies the villagers’ claims that he has not visited their village.
