Chamarajanagara: When people are killing each other for a piece of land, a small farmer in Ellemala Village of Hanur Taluk has donated land for the construction of a Primary Health Centre (PHC) and set an example for social service.
The Health and Family Welfare Department officials were searching for a plot in Ellemala Village for the construction of PHC. But they could not find the plot. When farmer K. V. Siddappa came to know that the officials were searching for land, he voluntarily offered his land as a donation to the health centre. The Health Department officials received 2400 square feet of land and named it Smt. Jayamma Siddappa Primary Health Centre.
The construction will begin in December, said officials. The act of donation by the farmer has been lauded by villagers.
