Moved by their plight, Governor Das swiftly intervened, offering Rs 25,000 to alleviate their immediate hardships.

He also took the opportunity to visit the Anganwadi center in Halditangiri, where he interacted with the Anganwadi workers and parents. During these interactions, he emphasized the importance of addressing malnutrition and raised awareness about the issue.

Governor Das also extended his reach to the tailor training center at Naranpur, engaging with members of the WSHG. Emphasizing the significance of women’s education, he underscored that education serves as the most potent tool to alleviate poverty.
