Dal de-hoarding: Malgodown strike from today

Cuttack: Protesting the ongoing dal de-hoarding drive by the Odisha government, the Cuttack Chamber of Commerce (CCC) on Tuesday decided that there would be no trading in the Malgodown from Wednesday.

Informing the media here on Tuesday evening, CCC member Prashant Patra said as decided in the meeting, there would be no procurement of essential commodities in the Malgodown for an indefinite period from Wednesday.
