Bhubaneswar: Vehicular movement on the Bhawanipatna-Jeypore National Highway 26 has been disrupted as hundreds of farmers have now staged a road blockade at Charbahal, demanding early procurement of paddy at Mandis.

The protesters have alleged that thousands of quintals of Rabi paddy have sprouted as they have piled at Mandis for days. They have demanded that the District Supply Officer comes to them assure them in written that all paddy would be procured from today.

Police have reached the spot and are trying to pacify the mobs.
