Bhubaneswar, Apr 3: Members today staged a demonstration over the drainage problem in between SUM Hospital and Kalinga Studio Square in the state capital.
The members complained that, though the area comes under the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) but the authorities are not paying attention towards it. During rainy season many daily commuters face problems as the stagnant drain water overflows from the drain to the road.
” Thousands of commuters use the stretch on daily basis. Several important establishments including educational institutes are located besides the stretch. Residents are forced to risk their lives as the BMC has become a mute spectator,” said an agitator.
The protest was led by BJP spokesperson Dilip Mohanty, in presence of Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi, District president Babu Singh and other members of the party.
