Malkangiri: The Malkangiri district administration woke from its slumber and provided a boat for the people so that they do not have to risk their lives to cross a river at Nerudipali area under Chitrakonda block.

The move came after a report was telecast in media showing two Anganwadi workers-Hemalata Sisa and Pramila Penel- crossing a flooded river with dry pumpkin shells and empty pots tied to their waist. The plight of the Anganwadi workers had moved noted industrialist and chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra who had offered to provide a boat.

Both Hemlata and Pramila had to risk their lives to visit Sualipali and Nerudi villages by crossing the flooded river.

The video of such perilous attempt by the Anganwadi workers had gone viral on social media. OTV too had telecast a report on the incident.
