A Dalit widow is not getting job beacuse of her caste!

Rajeev Sagaria is telling us about a Dalit widow Pirabai who is not getting a job because of her caste. District Magistrate of Bolangir gave a written order on 6th Oct 2010 to give a job of assistant in Anganwadi to Peerabai but there is no implementation of the order after a year. Many officials have offered to help but nothing has happened on ground. People say off the record that if a dalit woman cooks in Anganwadi who is going to eat?
