Bhubaneswar,November 5: The BJP today has demanded a judicial probe into the series of farmer suicide in the state.

We, therefore, demand a judicial probe into the cases to bring truths to the limelight, Mohapatra told reporters in the state capital after winding up his visit to the drought prone districts.

Referring to the drought situation in south Odisha, Mohapatra said the situation in 14 blocks of Rayagada, Gajapati and Kandhamal districts is grim.
