Badaun, India: You can vaccinate our kids, if you give us a level crossing!

11 May

Officials in the Badaun District in Uttar Pradesh are faced with demands that a level crossing is built to serve the needs of those living in Mohammadpur Bihar village, located in the Binawar area of the district. This is nothing unusual in itself. However, on this occasion the villagers have backed-up their stance by saying they will only bring their children to be immunised. This position places the consequences of not enjoying the benefits of the immunisation programme with the children. It is a very cynical route to advancing the case for the restoration of a level crossing, eliminated when the railway was converted from metre to standard gauge.
