Jajpur: A novel appeal of a specially abled man of Odisha’s Jajpur district for a house from the state government has paid off.

In a viral video, Prafulla Kumar Das of Ragadi village under Korei block in the district is seen singing to a harmonium while describing his poor financial condition and vain efforts for a landed property. He wished that his appeal reached the district Collector.

It did.

The Jajpur district administration on Saturday provided a homestead plot to Das, who is visually challenged. The district administration provided him the plot measuring four decimal under the Basundhara scheme of the state government.

After an order of the Jajpur Collector, Byasanagar tehsildar Ashok Kumar Majhi and additional tehsildar Bikram Kumar Mallick handed over the land deed to Das.

Das thanked Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik by singing a self-composed song.

He had earlier appealed to the sarpanch, block development officer and tehsildar for a house under the Indira Awaas Yojana. However, no help was allegedly provided to him. After several attempts and running from pillar to post, he decided to appeal to the Collector to provide him with a place to stay.
