NDA's presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu has no electricity in the village

Today the whole country knows Draupadi Murmu, the presidential candidate from NDA. But unfortunately, the ancestral village of Draupadi Murmu, which is making headlines, is far away from electric light. There is no electricity in Dungurishahi village under the Kusum block of Mayurbhanj district even after so many years of independence. Draupadi Murmu was born in Uparbeda village of Mayurbhanj district of Odisha. There are two hamlets in this village with a population of 3500. Bada Shahi and Dungri Shahi.

There is electricity in Badshahi, but Dungrishahi is still shrouded in darkness. People here drive away from the darkness of night with kerosene oil and go 1 kilometer away to charge mobiles. When Draupadi Murmu became the presidential candidate, Dungri Shahi came into the limelight. When the journalists reached this village, they did not get electricity here. After this, this village came into the limelight.

After this, the Odisha government started the initiative to provide electricity to this village.

The state government has started installing electric poles and transformers on a war footing in the village of Murmu, a tribal-dominated area. Biranchi Narayan Tudu, son of Bhagat Charan, the late brother of Presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu, and 20 other families in the village drive away from the darkness of night with kerosene lights. At the same time, the local people must go to the village situated at a distance of 1 kilometer to charge the mobile. Biranchi Narayan Tudu is a farmer and lives in this village with his two children and wife. Draupadi Murmu's ancestral village Dungurishahi is located at a distance of 20 km from Rairangpur in the Mayurbhanj district. The people of the village are very proud because the daughter of their village has been made the candidate for the most prestigious post in the country.

However, despite feeling proud, the villagers have also expressed their displeasure. The reason behind this is that his village has not got electricity yet.

However, now the villagers are hopeful that soon like other settlements, their village will have electricity, and the streets will be lit up with lights. Dhanmani Baskey, a member of the district Panchayat Samiti of Dungurishahi, said there is no electricity in the village. Even before Draupadi Murmu became the Presidential candidate, the local people of the village had applied for an electricity connection with the District Magistrate. Dhanmani said that kerosene lamps are lit at night to run away from the darkness. Also, to charge the mobile, we have to go to the nearby village of Badshahi.

However, on the state government's orders, the administration has started installing electric poles and transformers in Dungurishah on a war footing. It is expected that soon all the houses will have electricity connection. Draupadi Murmu's younger brother Tarnisen Tudu said there are two villages in the Kusum block of the district, Barashahi and Dungurishahi. Barashahi is situated at a distance of 1 kilometer from Dungurishahi. He said that Dungurishah was a small settlement of only 5 families in childhood. But over the years, the number of houses in this settlement has increased. We all grew up in Badshahi, but our elder brother Bhagat Charan's son Biranchi Narayan Tudu lives with his family in Dungurshahi, where there is no electricity. Talking to the media, Mayurbhanj district's District Pal Vineet Bhardwaj said.
