Bhubaneswar: The Shahegharia Gramya Committee has demanded that Ravan Podi (a ritual of burning of mythological demon character Ravan) be stopped in the Ersama area.

The committee has made this demand following the Jagatsinghpur district administration dismantled a stage set for ‘Ravan Podi’ function to be attended by Paradip MLA Damodar Rout at Anchalika Yuva Parishad ground in Ersama.

Strongly reacting to the development, the seven-time MLA Rout has alleged that the stage wad dismantled at the behest of Ersama-Balikuda MLA Prashant Muduli.

Notably, former Minister Rout has been suspended from the BJD for anti-party activities.
