Bandh disrupts normal life in Boudh

Boudh: Normal life came to a standstill in the district due to a dawn-to-dusk bandh observed by the Congress on Wednesday demanding fulfillment of its eight-point charter of demands.

MThe members of the party blocked roads at many places bringing vehicular movement to a grinding halt in the district. All educational institutes, private organisations and business establishments remained closed during the bandh.

However, emergency services remained operational as the protesters spared these services from the shutdown.

The agitating members of the party took to the streets demanding resignation of the block chairman for illegally getting NFSA ration card in his name, filling up of all vacant doctor posts at the district headquarters hospital, supply of clean drinking water and government recognition to the oldest college of the district.
