Bhubaneswar: Senior Congress leader Suresh Kumar Routray, popularly known as Sura Routray, today led the party workers in staging rail roko at the Bhubaneswar railway station during the six-hour Odisha bandh observed by the party against rising fuel prices.
Though a police officer tried to stop the Jatani MLA from entering the station platform, but in vain.
“As directed by Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) President Niranjan Patnaik, we are observing a peaceful bandh today. Prices of diesel, petrol, and LPG are increasing rapidly affecting the public, especially the poor. The Central Government and State Government should slash the prices,” said Routray.
