JEYPORE: Supporters of Chasi Mulia Adivasi Sangh (CMAS) of Narayanpatna took out a rally demanding fulfilment of their 14-point charter of demands which includes immediate release of their leader, Nachika Linga, on Friday. Hundreds of tribals of nine panchayats gathered at the Jagannath temple in Narayanpatna and took out the rally demanding development of roads, health and education facilities in the area.
