Even today, the population of 50,000 people of the six panchayats of the assembly constituency is forced to take the help of boats to travel from the block headquarters to the district headquarters. About fifty thousand people of Sirsi Panchayat, Khapda, Hafnia, Khadimhinggaon etc. panchayats of the assembly constituency have to go to Fakir Toli Chowk via Khadi Haat to go from the district headquarters to the block headquarters. Due to non-construction of bridge over Kankai river on the road from Fakirtoli to Khadihat, the residents of the area have to face a lot of difficulty in movement. The situation becomes dire especially during floods. Boats are the only means of carrying ration, water and essential commodities to the people. Minor accidents keep on happening in the boat movement. In view of the problem of movement of people, in the year 2011, the construction work of the bridge started on the Khadi Ghat in Kankai river. But even after 12 years the construction work could not be completed.

Even the rain did not give relief

This time the weather also did not cooperate with the people. Especially the farmers are facing a lot of trouble.

Due to this, on the one hand, there is no hope left among the farmers to get their farming and household back on track. Farmers have been surrounded by the problem of wastage of their cost money. Now the farmers have started pleading with God to get as much income as possible. The moisture of most of the fields remained intact. There is no use even after its efforts. As a result, farmers have to conserve moisture with the help of pumpsets and motors.

On the other hand, the requirement of water started increasing even after planting due to the scorching heat of the sun. Together, the havoc of these calamities has left everyone in trouble. Farmers are gazing towards the sky. They say that instead of reducing the heat due to sporadic rains, it gets intensified. Artificial measures are able to get short-term benefits. Then the situation becomes as it was. The humidity has increased. People are also getting ill due to the strong sunlight on coming out. It has become difficult to go to the fields even after wishing during the day.
