Jeypore: The Koraput district unit of Congress today staged road blockades on two National Highways passing through the district here demanding Notified Area Council (NAC) status for Borigumma bringing vehicular movement on the busy roads to a grinding halt for 12-hours.
The Congress workers and leaders staged road blockades on NH-26 and NH-63 and raised slogans against the Central and Odisha Governments.
The party leaders alleged that though Borigumma happens to be the largest block in Odisha, it is yet to get the NAC status which is extremely ridiculous.
Hundreds of vehicles and commuters were seen stranded on the National Highways due to the blockades.
Notably, the ruling BJD and the BJP too had raised the issue earlier.
