JAIPUR: A delegation of the BJP met Jajpur Collector Satya Kumar Mallik here on Tuesday and drew his attention to the problems bothering Barachana constituency.

The delegation, led by the party’s State secretary Simantini Jena, told the Collector that even as over 12,000 people of 18 villages in three gram panchayats are deprived of drinking water facility, private companies and rice mills are illegally drawing ground water by digging dozens of deep bore wells on their plant premises.

The delegation handed over a memorandum to the Collector with their 10-point charter of demands.

The demands include immediate supply of drinking water to the people of Samia, Paria and Bayree panchayats, stringent action against local mafia who have been looting minor minerals, ban on heavy vehicles carrying metals through the village road, immediate rehabilitation of people displaced by Orissa Cements Limited, inquiry into rampant corruption in supply of Chhatua to the children under ICDC scheme and passenger amenities at Chandikhole and Chhatia bazaars.
