Bhadrak, Sep 22: The Bhadrak BJP unit today held a demonstration in front of the Collectorate here demanding immediate relief to the people who have debarred from the same after being affected in the recent flood in the district.
The agitators alleged that panchayats in the Bhandaripokhari block have been affected by the floods but many affected have been debarred from getting relief. Families in the different villages were given reliefs in phases, but some were left out.
They said that some residents of Rahania Panchayat in Bhandaripokhari block and some residents of Nuapokhari and Santaragadia villages were left out.
They have previously complained to the local BDO about the matter but in vain. “Later, we decided to held demonstration before collectorate and if the demands are not made we will resort to hunger strike in the coming days,” they threatened.
