“There was no school or anganwadi in the village and we had to go to the city through a difficult terrain, so I decided to construct a road. There is even no hospital here, once I had to carry my pregnant wife three miles in a basket to reach the nearest hospital through it.” he said via Times of News.

As indicated by India’s Rural Employment Guarantee Act, Nayak is qualified for getting payment for his diligent work and labor.

In the mean time, S K Jena, the square improvement officer, clarified that the organization had requested that Nayak go to the city before, yet he didn’t pay notice to their solicitations.

“It is almost an inhabitable area where he lives, we had earlier invited him to come and live in the city but he refused. Our support is there for him, whether he will be felicitated or not has been decided yet,” he added.
