Koraput, Jun 24:

A 12-hour dawn-to-dusk bandh was observed at Lamtaput in Odisha’s Koraput district today. The bandh was called by Lamtaput Youth Association demanding fulfillment of a seven-point charter of demands.


Normal life was affected due to the bandh as shops and schools remained closed and vehicular movement came to a grinding halt. Members of the association were seen blocking roads at several places by burning tyres.

Bus service from Machakunda to Jeypore and Koraput remained off during the bandh.

The demands of the association include uninterrupted electricity supply to Lamtaput, construction of road from Lamtaput to Kota and appointment of doctors in community health center.
