Agriculture & irrigation issues in sarauna
Panki, Palamu District   said on
Agricultural status of this village (sarauna) is very poor. For this many reasons can be described. But as I think some prominent reasons are lack of actual knowledge of agriculture, lack of irrigational hardware, lack of publicly interests for agriculture etc.

Lesliganj, Palamu District   said on
There is about negligible transport facility in kundri except NH-75 Crossing through the village.....And there is also too much lack of inter village road network,there are only such a few road crossing through Jhanda pol.....We suffer too much problems while walking on these roads specially in rainy season...In rainy season we could not even think to walk on these roads....This is one of the major issue of my village....
