DG Police takes stock of Kondhmal
Meanwhile, the tribal organisation spearheading the movement demanding action against fake tribe certificate holders, the Kui Samaj, has withdrawn its four-day shutdown call and instead would observe bandh for a day on December 26. The decision was arrived at after discussions between the district administration and the Samaj office bearers. The High Court had asked the administration to resolve the dispute.
The Baliguda MLA Karendra Majhi today raised the issue in the state assembly. Majhi requested the government to take all necessary steps to maintain peace in the district during the Christmas.
