AFter the story officials announced extension of the system and after june the developmental works started and is going on now. 

Techniques/technologies used:

I use RTI, also interviewed to officials and efectee citizens. It was a story for TV that was also part of screen and website to,

What was the hardest part of this project?

In my town i applied many RTI applications but not a single one was responded in systematic way. so it was hard to get data from authorities. On other side it is totally manual data taking and its reporting was a tough one.

What can others learn from this project?

It is a about citizen investigative data story so other journalist can make thier stories for making an impact.
