Whenever it is election time, our ministers often make big promises, such as cheap electricity, access to clean drinking water and good transportation facilities etc.

Common men take charge when government fails to do its job

Tired of these false promises and no one working towards building a road, the villagers of Larahi in Hazaribagh district in Jharkhand decided to take the matter into their own hands. Working continuously, 50 people managed to build a one and a half kilometre road in four months.

The government’s estimate to complete this one and a half kilometre patch of road valued at 58 crores was eventually completed in only 50 lakhs. The villagers not only built the road but have also constructed a bridge over the Koina river.


What was the matter?

Ironically the villagers were demanding for the road and the bridge since 1996 when a boat had overturned and six people were killed. Since then all that the villagers received was nothing but fake promises. After 20 years of wait and false hopes given by every ruling party, the villagers have finally completed the road and the bridge without any help from the state.

This one and a half kilometre stretch has made the lives of people a lot easier. Villagers can now complete their journey from Laher to Koderma in 30 km which is now 15 km less than the usual distance.

The Logical Indian team salutes and applauds the efforts made by the villagers of Larahi for doing a job which should have been done by the government long ago.
