Kalahandi: Hundreds of farmers have taken to streets to protest demanding their Polasara block as drought stricken under the aegis of Chasi Sachetan Manch. They blocked National Highway 26 since morning to press their demands, thereby interrupting the traffic between Bhawanipatna and Jeypore.

Notably, the convenor of Chasi Sachetan Manch Siba Prasad Pradhan had sent a memorandam to the State Government through sub collector, tehsildar, and 22 gram panchayat officers of the blocks to declare the area as completely struck by drought. But no steps have been taken towards it, they alleged.
