We have also opened dhabas, tea stalls and cycle repair sheds for people to earn a better livelihood. We have also arranged to provide tuition fee for 300 children of the villages there,” they added.

The members said many villagers do not have a concrete roof in their houses and that they had appealed to the Centre and state to make provisions for them under the PM Awaas Yojna.
