Sudarsan Patnaik calls off stir after Odisha govt swings into action

Puri: Internationally acclaimed sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik today ended dharna at Bankimuhan here after Odisha government took steps with regard to cleaning of the polluted beach.


Odisha Water Supply and Sewerage Board (OWSSB) today invited tender for diversion of waste water at Bankimuhan as a permanent solution to the problem.

Notably, Patnaik launched his sit-in dharna on Tuesday in protest against the beach pollution near Bankimuhan. Two days later, he was admitted to a private hospital in Bhubaneswar as he fell ill. However, his students continued with the protest.

After discharge from the hospital on Friday, Patnaik continued his protest and finally called off today.
