Problems of the Village’s People

As the Village is small so basic facilities are absent  No hospital, No Markets,No college for Boys or Girls therefore peoples especially females have to face many difficulties in order to fulfill their daily or occasional necessacities. Main problems of the village are as under

Problems of the Poor People

People of the village are not very rich nor very poor. Except few houses all other can earn their livelihood easily those who are poor they are helped by the other village people in the form of Fitrana or other things in the name of God so fortunately every one is able to eat honourably

Educational Problems Faced by Girls

This is another main problem faced by students especially by Girls as there is no institute after  Primary  the girls have to face great hurdle in their career so most of them stop their education because villagers does not allow their girls to go away from their homes,so most of the girls are only till five class if other want to carry on their education they do so either Privately through Punjab University or  through Allama Iqbal Open University Islamabad.

Promises made by the Political Leaders of the area

This is a very interresting  topic because when there is period of election especially of National and Provincial Assembly it looks that all the candidates are our own and they are in election only for our village because they solve all the problems of the village with their tongue in few minutes but as soon as they becomes leaders they even refuse to recognize their major supporters until the next election comes.

Crime rate in the Village

The crime rate in the village  is Zero because all the people live with peace each other

Jagirdari System

Unlike other nearby villages Jagirdari system is notat its peak but some roots are there in this village , one example occurred few years ago when all the JUTT bradary decided to punish  Kami brodery because they were becoming disobedient unfortunately some of them come under this violence but now situation is changing with the passage of time

Health Facilities                 

There is no hospital in the village only one clinic is present which is run by a health related servant. peoples get medicine of minor diseases from Behkho mor and of major from Phalia or M.B.Din.

Suggestions

  1. Education problems of girls can be resolved by constructing an institute upto master level atleast in arts subjects in this or any of the neigbhouring villages.
  2. About promises of leaders (bus Allah un ko hadaet de).
  3. Problem of poor people can be met by creating fund for them by villagers.
