Even though the State Government is making tall claims of bringing job opportunities for the poor at their doorsteps through MGNREGS, a report of some villagers migrating from Balangir district to neighbouring Andhra Pradesh for earning livelihood and subsequently returning harassed proves the claims wrong.
According to reports, 12 members of four families belonging to Sargul village of Ichhapada Grampanchyat under the Muribahal block had gone to work in brick kilns of Moudipalam in Vishakhapatnam district in January 2014. They had taken advance money from two local sardars before leaving the village.Recently when these people wanted to back home the kiln owner reportedly refused to give them leave. Aggrieved at this, four male of them, Giridhri Haripal, Ashok Benia, Kunu Deep and Bidyadhar Kalet, left the kiln without others’ notice and reached Sargul a few days back.
“We are worried about the condition of female members and children left there,” lamented Bhajaram Sahu, an NGO activist.Meanwhile, Balangir SP Ravi Prakash talked to the Additional SP of Vishakhapatnam on the matter. The Vishakhapatnam SP assured that he would take necessary steps to protect the rest of family members left in the brick kiln, Prakash told The Pioneer.
