Kandhamal, Apr 3:
Protesters blocked Phulbani-Berhampur National Highway demanding water in Odisha’s Kandhamal district.
Hundreds of locals at Rujangi village under Alami Panchayat in Kandhamal staged road blockade on the NH protesting the water scarcity they are facing in the past three to four days during the scorching summer.
They demanded the district administration to take immediate step to provide drinking water in the locality.
They warned to intensify the agitation if the demand is not met soon.
However, the road blockade was cleared after police reached the spot and convinced the villagers.
