12-Hour Bandh Hits Normal Life In Odisha’s Bamra

Sambalpur: Demanding the halt of three express trains, a 12-hour bandh is being observed by the Rail Kriyanusthana Committee in Bamra town of Odisha’s Sambalpur district on Monday.

The committee wants three trains — Rajendra Nagar-Durg Express, Rourkela-Bhubaneswar Intercity Express, and Howrah-Ahmedabad Express — to halt at Bamra station.

The committee members staged a rail roko at the Bamra station holding placards and banners. The bandh also affected vehicular movement in the town as they resorted to intense sloganeering against the local administration.

A meeting involving the committee members, the sub-collector, local SDPO, and Railway authorities had taken place on Monday, but it remained inconclusive and the members called for the bandh.
