Congress bandh affects life acros Odisha

Bhubaneswar, June 26: The statewide dawn-to-dusk shut-down called by Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee in protest to the man made delay in Nabakalebar rituals and the apathetic attitude of the Naveen patnaik government towards the demand for a judicial probe into the gross mismanagement has affected public life across the state.

Normal life is out of gear as trains, passenger buses and other public transport facilities have been kept off the roads. Streets wore a deserted look in most of the cities and interior parts of the State.

In Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Berhampur and other major cities experienced the impact of the Bandh as business establishments, educational institutions and public utility centres, except those coming under essential services, remained closed.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik came to office an hour late than usual.

Adequate security arrangements have been made by the police to prevent any violence or untoward incident furing the bandh.

Even though leaders claim it to be a success, the congress party had to face severe criticism because of violence instigated by its members in many places including the capital city.

As per plans, office bearers and workers of Congress are expected to gather at the Ram Mandir in Bhubaneswar to light up oil lamps and pray the Lord to excuse for the sin committed by the State government and errant servitors.
