Among all the circles in Changlang District, Dawodi (Vijoynagar) is most neglected in every sense of the word.
THERE IS NO BANK: Only an SBI Customer Care Centre is there. In such absence what development can happen. Every circle nearby has at least one SBI Bank with staffs. Miao, Kharsang, Diyun and Jairampur to name a few has one. Not one in Vijoynagar.
THERE IS NO GAS STATION: Firewood is the only fuel available for cooking our food. Prime Minister’s PM Ujjwala Yojana remain only a dream for the villagers of the circle.
Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana is an ambitious social welfare scheme of Narendra Modi Government launched on 1st May 2016 from Ballia in Uttar Pradesh. Under the PM Ujjwala Yojana, the government aims to provide LPG connections to BPL households in the country. The scheme is aimed at replacing the unclean cooking fuels mostly used in the rural India with the clean and more efficient LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas). Source
THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY: Till the 1990s the government provided electricity to Vijoynagar Headquarters by generator. Then stopped until recently when solar electrification began, only to become unfunctional soon after installation. We are without electricity.
THERE IS NO MOBILE NETWORK: While even remote villages are extended 4G network, our area is without a basic mobile network. For now only a few Satellite PCOs are available. To utilize its service, one has to walk over a kilometre and for some more than 10 km. Arriving does not end the trauma, one has to stand in line for the turn. Provision of a mobile network will ease a lot in our communication system.
THERE IS NO PETROL PUMP: We have to carry four to five days to use petrol in villages for running generators and chain saws. What a trouble… but we need it for daily survival.
THERE IS NO PROVISION STORE: You cannot drop in a buy provisions such as rice, salt, atta, maida. Simply because they are not available. In the whole circle you cannot find a provision store.
Vijoynagar Circle is a funny circle where the government has deliberately closed its eyes.
