of Kaushambi, installation of an irrigation tube-well in the area, fairness in distribution of pension and ration cards and appointment of the four vacant posts of teachers in Jalalpur school which has only one teacher out of two posts.
He said that Jalalpur, Madaripur, Gohti and Tarapur had electric connections till 4 years back but the wires broke in a storm after which due to political disinterest and administrative callousness the department has failed to reconnect the wires.

These are the only villages in the entire area, which are administratively under Kaushambi district and for crime purposes under Kareli police station, which falls under Allahabad district.
