The dharna by the Lower Suktel Action Committee, which is spearheading the agitation demanding execution of the irrigation project, entered the fourth day on Thursday.
President of Samajwadi Party Balangir district unit Arun Mishra said, “Yesterday we had given 48 hours to the district administration to discuss with us on the issue. So far, nobody from the administration has come forward to talk with us. Unless the administration holds discussion with us, we may resort to further methods of agitation, for which the Government will be held responsible.”
He alleged that the ruling BJD, which made the Lower Suktel Project an election plank, has now forgotten its promise. Leaders of several opposition parties of the district are also showing less enthusiasm towards the issue, Mishra alleged further.
On Wednesday, members of the Zilla Adivasi Kalyan Sangh led by BK Singhbhoi also supported the agitation.
