The Chief Minister has also directed the Panchayati Raj Department to provide drinking water supply and construct a motorable road to the place at the earliest. 

It may be mentioned here that the five reported deaths at village Manuspadar in Kashipur block of Rayagada district have occurred over a period of one month. The village is in a remote and difficult area.
