According to reports, bus services in eight routes in Rayagada, Kandhamal and other few pockets in Malkangiri district have been suspended as a precautionary measure, following the call for observation of the PLGA week by Maoists putting up posters at Mahupadar and Kalimela areas in Malkangiri district.
