The dharna before the district Collectorate here by the Lower Suktel Action Committee, which is spearheading the agitation for execution of the Lower Suktel Irrigation Project, entered the fifth day on Friday when former Balangir MP Balgopal Mishra extended his support to the stir.
Mishra said that it was Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik who laid the foundation of this project in 2001, but even after 11 long years the project is in limbo. This is due to the apathy of his Government and neglect of this area and region.
“We are going to intensify the agitation further,” said Samajwadi Party Balangir unit president Arun Mishra.
