5 Haryana Villages Give ₹ 50 Crore For Covid, Residents Say No Basic Facilities

Thursday, 13 August 2020

Beyond the skyscrapers of "Millenium City" Gurgaon lies a village called Palra. A village of 7,000 people which has seen only one case of COVID-19 so far but has donated ₹ 21 crore to the Haryana government's coronavirus relief fund. It is among the five villages of Haryana that have together donated  50 crore to the fund. None of these villages, however, are facing a Covid crisis. The money has been donated by the village panchayats, from the development fund of the villages.

 

 

 


Haryana has over 42,000 COVD-19 cases. Across these five villages, there have been a total of only five cases; one case in Palra and four in Nasibpur. The other three villages have not seen a single case.While Palra village, which is in Gurgaon, has donated  21 crore, Sersa and Rampur in Sonipat district have donated 11 crore and  2.5 crore respectively. The village of Bal Jattan in Panipat district has donated  10.5 crore and Nasibpur in Narnaul has contributed 5 crore.

 

 

 

 

Villages in these areas tend to have funds running into crores due to compensation for frequent land acquirement projects. Palra still has 23 crore left.But residents of the village narrate the lack of basic facilities. The only school Palra is only up to Class 10. Many girls students are struggling as other schools are several kilometres away."All parents worry about how to send their girls alone for such distance. There is no conveyance. It's very troublesome to travel.
