Reeling under backwardness for long,M S Dhoni’s ancestral village,Lwali in Uttarakhand,has something to cheer about as the state government has announced a road to the area to honour the Team India captain for winning the cricket World Cup.

Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has announced a new road for Lwali in Almora district as a reward for Dhoni’s achievement. Pokhriyal has already announced to give a residential plot or a house to Dhoni and cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar for winning the cup.

Dhanpat Singh Dhoni,the Indian team captain’s uncle,said,“We have heard that there will be road for Lwali. But I am not impressed as the fate of such announcements remains unknown.”

Last month,Dhoni’s parents had come to Lwali to participate in a marriage ceremony. The village has a population of 60-odd families. Villagers trek for nearly 5 km to reach Lwali from Bajaghar area,the last road head in the area where drinking water is also a scarcity.
