Govt clueless, villagers remove maoist blockade at their own risk

Ajit Panda from Khariar in Nuapada district of Odisha says some days back there was a report on Swara that Maoists have blocked a connecting road in Bodem block during their bandh and have asked police to remove the blockade. I spoke to police officials about it but they did not respond. Villagers were suffering because due to road block PDs and health vehicle etc were not able to reach the villages. After no response from the Govt since 25th June now villagers have removed the blockage at their own risk. For more Panda ji can be reached at 09437203461
