Postcard campaign demanding sub-division-status for Chandbali intensifies

Bhadrak: Members of Sangrami Sena group have intensified their postcard campaign demanding Notified Area Council (NAC) sub-division status for Chandbali.

The group has been continuing its campaign since last 8 days. They have a target to send 1 lakh postcards to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.

“All necessary infrastructure for the approval of Chandbali as NAC sub-division already exists. We will continue to protest till our demands are not fulfilled,” said Sukanta Naik, member Sangrami Sena.
Meanwhile, senior BJP leader, Manmohan Samal said “Chandbali can be included in the list of a few places that can be granted sub-division status. It fulfils all criteria and has the necessary infrastructure. But the Government is not willing to declare it a sub-division.”

On the other hand, ruling-BJD’s Chandbali MLA, Byomkesh Ray, said “There has always been a demand to declare Chandbali as NAC sub-division. However, some people have taken up the demand now eyeing the upcoming elections which is un-acceptable. The government is aware about it and will take necessary steps.”
