Bhubaneswar: Vehicular movement on the Cuttack-Chandabali road has been disrupted severely since this morning as hundreds of local women have staged a road blockade at Tinimuhani chhack under Kendrapara district, demanding immediate close of a liquor shop at Nageshwarpur.
“We have been demanding for long that the liquor shop should be closed soon. Many families have suffered as their adult men members are spending daily wages in buying liquor. As nobody listened to our demand, we forced to take to the streets,” said agitating women.
Police personnel have rushed to the spot and are trying to conciliate the situation.
