Bhubaneswar: Vehicular movement on the Athagarh-Narasinghpur road has remained disrupted due to a Rasta Roko being staged by villagers demanding a patch of land for creation of graveyard at Champeswar village u nder the Narasinghpur area in Cuttack district since this morning.
According to reports, over a hundred of villagers sat on the road to press for allotment of a piece of land for use as graveyard.
“We have been approached the administration many times and place our demand. But our demand has fallen in deaf years only. Now, we are forced to take to the streets,” said agitators.
