SUKTEL WORK STALLED AS LOCALS PROTEST Friday, 02 June 2017 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The Lower Suktel Irrigation Project work in
Balangir district came to a halt on Thursday as the project-displaced people
staged a dharna at the site demanding their earliest rehabilitation and
revision of the compensation package as per the Land Acquisition Act.
The agitators demanded that the project
construction activities be stopped till fulfilment of their demands.
The agitation was staged under the banner of the
Lower Suktel Mahila Mahasangha.
Notably, the district administration had earlier
promised them to fulfil their demands by May 31 but failed to do so.
