The residents of Bargarh town thronged in large numbers at the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) and voiced to upgrade it into a city hospital on Monday.
The residents with placards demanded for the city hospital since the Bargarh DHH which has moved to a farther place has led to inconvenience.
However, vehicular movement has not been kept off roads. Meanwhile, shops and markets have remained closed.
The protesters have voiced to continue with their stir if their demands remain unfulfilled.
