[Watch] In Odisha’s Malkangiri, Officials Ride Horses To Take Stock Of Work
Malkangiri: A team of state government officials on Tuesday arrived in Malkangiri’s Swabhiman area to supervise development projects.
What has amused the local residents is the manner in which they arrived and went about their work: they were on horseback, reminding of a bygone era when maharajahs ruled.
A video of two officials — Panchayati Raj Under-Secretary Trilochan Mohanty and Project Director Balamukunda Bhuyan — has since gone viral on social media.
The Chitrakonda BDO, forest officials, SDPO and other government officials accompanied them.
Sources said that the officials travelled on horseback as several areas are accessible only by dirt, pedestrian tracks.
