Bhubaneswar: Normal life has been severely hit at Sinapali in Nuapada district due to an indefinite bandh being observed by the Sinapali Yubak Sangha over various demands, the major being frequent unreported power cut in the area.
Due to bandh, shops, bazaars and Government and private offices have remained closed. Vehicular movement has been fully disrupted as the activists have blocked roads. Passengers waiting to go to different places have been stranded at the bus stand.
'We are suffering a lot due to unreported power cuts. Even as we have approached the authorities umpteen times, no action has been taken. We have been forced to take to the streets,' lamented activists.
They too protested against severe disruption in the Airtel network in the area.
'We have called Sinapalli Bandh for an indefinite period. We will not withdraw our stir unless we have not got an uninterrupted power supply,' said the activists.
