Bhubaneswar: Normal life in Salepur has been severely affected due to a 12-hour bandh underway in the town now.
According to reports, various organisations have begun observing the bandh to press for implementation of seven demands, including NAC status to Salepur.
Shops, bazaars, schools and eductational institutions have remained closed. Movement of vehicles has been severely disrupted.
“Salepur town has grown into a big a town for long. It is disappointing that the administration has neglected by not giving NAC status to it. We have been forced to take to the streets to press for out demands,” said agitating activists.
Adequate numbers of police personnel have been deployed to ensure that no law and order situation occurs in the town during the bandh.
