Maoists are observing ‘Bharat Bandh’ on the last day of their Martyrs’ Week

Baliguda31/1/19: Maoists are today observing ‘Bharat Bandh’ on the last day of their Martyrs’ Week and have resorted to road blockade in some places of Odisha.

The red rebels blocked Kotagarh-Muniguda road near Bandapipili and Baliguda-Daringbadi road near Pakaladami ghat in Kandhamal district by cutting down trees.

The extremists also put up posters and leaflets at the spot urging people to extend their support towards the bandh call.

Effect of the bandh was also evident in Malkangiri as vehicular movement in the district, especially on Malkangiri-Jeypore road, came to a grinding halt.

In Kalahandi, the Maoists blocked road at Kendhu ghat in a similar way and torched a excavator, which was engaged in road construction work.

Similarly, in Rayagada, the Maoists blocked road at Chatikana and put up posters in the village.
