Three-day Titlagarh bandh over district status
Titlagarh: Titlagarh Zilla Kriyanusthan Committee on Tuesday announced a three-day bandh starting from today in the area demanding district status for Titlagarh.
Government offices and banks have remained closed today following the bandh.
“Titlagarh deserves to be a separate district as it is one of the largest sub-division in the state,” the agitators said.
While the demands to make Titlagarh, a district in earlier protests have not been considered yet, the locals have resorted to the three-day bandh again, a protestor said.
Similarly, Kriyanusthan Committee, a local outfit, of Banpur in Tangi staged a protest demanding sub-division status to the area.
According to sources, agitators locked down the Block tehsil and the sub-registrar office. The locals also staged blockades by burning tyres on the road.
