Ghazipur (UP), Nov 9: Semraul village in Uttar Pradesh's Ghazipur district is a truth on the ground but on the official paper, neither the village nor its 3,600 people exist. The utter negligence on behalf of government servants has deprived any identity to Semraul and its residents.

The 2001 census recorded the population of the village as zero and the villagers have been struggling to cast their votes since last 11 years. The village has over 1,900 voters and 116 BPL card holders. The ration arrives on time and also there is a primary school. But since no one resides in the village officially, there is no middle school.

The village pradhan, Sabhajit Singh Kushwaha, who assumed office two years ago, had raised the issue with the state's the then revenue and rural development minister but nothing changed. Kushwaha then went to the district panchayat office to get a clarification on the matter. He questioned why panchayat funds were not being released for the village although the district public relations office did not give the details.

Kushwaha, however, remained determined and said he would continue with his fight for the 'non-existent' village required huge aid for development.
