12-hour Bandh In Sindhekela Over Block Status; District Status To Titlagarh
Titlagarh: Locals observed a 12-hour bandh in Sindhekela today demanding block status to the sub-district and district status to Titlagarh.
Various groups also joined the dawn-to-dusk bandh called by the traders’ association.
Educational institutions, banks, and offices remained closed because of the bandh. Commuters also faced a harrowing time as vehicular traffic stayed off the roads.
The protestors also conducted a rally to press for their demands.
On being asked, a protestor said, “We have been demanding district status to Titlagarh for the last 25 years. Titlagarh deserves to be a separate district, as it is one of the largest sub-division in the state.”
