Bandh call hits normal life in Koraput
Koraput: The dawn to dusk Bharat bandh call given by Maoists today has hit normal life with the closure of commercial establishments and no transport system in Narayanpatna and Bandhugaon areas of Koraput district.
The band call has also affected bus services from Muniguda in Bisam Cuttack of Raygada district to Chandrapur and Kadhamal. Though buses are not plying in the Ankadili-Jaypur-Koraput route, only private buses are running to Paralakhemundi.
The passengers are facing problems as there is no transport system from Jaypur to Phulbani, Paralakhemundi and Cuttack. In the last bandh call given by the red rebels on April 20, both Narayanpatna and Bandhugaon blocks were cut off from the outer world for 11 days.
