Social activist Muktikanta Biswal failed to get an audience with Prime Minister Narendra Modi

New Delhi/Rourkela:5/7/18; Despite concerted efforts, social activist Muktikanta Biswal failed to get an audience with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

He had walked all the way to Delhi to remind the Prime Minister of the promises he had made during his maiden visit to Rourkela. The activist later resorted to hunger strike, which he called off on Wednesday after Delhi police did not allow him to sit on a dharna.

The 30-year-old youth had earlier shifted his strike place from Ramlila Maidan to  Jagannath Temple at Hauz Khas, where Odia spiritual leader Baba Balia broke his fast.

With Delhi police asking him to leave the capital, the activist said he would continue his stir in Rourkela.
