12-hr Bandh Over Establishment Of Medical College Cripples Normal Life In Bhadrak

Bhadrak: Normal life was thrown out of gear in the entire Bhadrak district on Thursday following a dawn-to-dusk bandh observed by Congress over the establishment of a medical college in the district.

The members of the outfit were seen picketing at different places.

Almost all the market complexes, shops, schools, colleges, banks and other offices remained closed during the observance of the bandh today. However, some emergency services were exempted from the purview of the bandh.

Meanwhile, several social outfits, students, youths, and intellectuals extended their support to the bandh.

The outfit threatened to intensify their agitation if their demands are not fulfilled at the earliest.
