Include 53 villages in Narayanpur, Centre urged

Wednesday, 27 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

The Chhattisgarh government on Tuesday proposed to the Centre to include 53 villages of Antagarh tehsil in Kanker district into Narayanpur.

This was stated by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel after some 3,000 tribal villagers reached Raipur marching around 150 km in support of the demand.

The villagers have been raising the issue since 2007. They walked from their villages and reached Raipur on Tuesday seeking the Chhattisgarh government's intervention.

The district headquarters of these villages is Kanker which is at a longer distance than Narayanpur. The villagers face problems reaching Kanker town. Narayanpur is only 20 km away.

Though the villagers avail health and education facilities in Narayanpur district, the problems arise when they have to travel to Kanker for government work.

The Chief Minister told officials to prepare a proposal and send it to the Union government.
