 BARIPADA : A delegation of Rairangpur Nagarik Suraksha Manch, led by its convenor and senior BJD leader Parthasarathi Kabi, recently met Mayurbhanj Collector Rajesh Prabhakar Patil over their demand for construction of a bypass road on National Highway (NH) 220, passing through Rairangpur town.


They also submitted a memorandum stating that the NH passing through the busy localities, including Rairangpur town, would create several problems for locals and commuters. The number of accidents in the area is likely to rise. This apart, several houses and commercial establishments will have to be demolished for the work. Similarly, educational institutions including Rairangpur Boys’ High School, Rairangpur Girls’ High School and Kanyashram are situated on the stretch, they stated.


 They have threatened to stage protests and dharnas across the district if the demands are not fulfilled.
 Sources said, construction work on 1000-km-long Ranchi-Vijaywada NH is going on in full swing. The NH also passes through Karanjia, a sub-divisional, and Bahalda block headquarters of the district.


 Among others, Zilla Parishad member Jalen Barda, senior lawyers Pankaj Das and Gourisankar Dutta and Sajid Hussain were present.
