Rayagada (Orissa), Oct.28 (ANI): Tribal women in Orissa’s Rayagada District have complained of poor support after losing their husbands to cholera.

“My husband died of diarrhoea and vomiting. My daughter also died recently. I am old and do not have enough food in my house. I don’t know how I will survive,” said Dalima Naik, a woman villager.

“My husband has died and left me alone with my four children. How will I feed my children? Nothing is left in my house. No money to buy essential commodities. No employment is there in nearby areas. I don’t know how to survive in this critical situation,” said Janaki Majhi, another woman villager.

These widows are hoping that the government will take steps to ease their woes. (ANI)
