He, his wife and three daughters stayed awake all night in the rain so that the house does not fall on them and they will be buried in the debris.
Chuni Lal said that four years ago he was told that he would be given money to build a pucca room under the housing scheme, but till date a not a single penny was not paid to him. Chuni Lal’s family has demanded that they should at least be provided a tarpaulin to cover their heads during this rainy season.
