Following is a report from OTV:

A social organisation ‘Right to Fight’ today resorted to rail roko at Kantabanji station demanding setting up of a rail wagon factory in the district.

Supported by many other associations including the local traders’ body, hundreds of activists blocked the rail track following which the Puri-Ahemadbad express was detained for at least two hours. Rail communication on the route was disrupted for quite sometime due to the blockade.

However, they cleared the track after top officials of the railways met the agitating activists and assured them of forwarding their demand to the government. Normalcy was then restored on the route.

Pointing out that around 70 acres of land is lying unused in the district which can be be used for setting up the wagon factory, an activist said; “It is a long-standing demand of the people of Balangir. If the government fails to fulfil our demand, the agitation will be intensified in the coming days.”
