Kendrapada:24/7/17:: With ‘do-it-yourself’ resolve, residents of a far-flung village in Odisha’s Kendrapara district have volunteered labour to clean up the village that languished in filth and squalor following the incessant monsoon rain. 

Without waiting for the panchayatraj body and block administration to act, the locals in a show of community preparedness cleaning up the village road and its surroundings.

Residents of Palashpur village under Dashipur gram panchyat under Marshaghai block jurisdiction were fed up with callous official machinery and took up the task themselves in making the village garbage-gree.

“We approached the panchayat body and its representatives. But it was of no avail. Later people pledged to clean up the garbage and roadside weed deposits by voluntary labour”, said a local resident, Anilkant Das.

The village looked horrible after the spell of rain. It now wears refreshing look. A three-hour-long community exercise marked by spirited perseverance has paid rich dividends.
