The Congress activists staged a rail roko protest on the railway tracks over a slew of demands at a level crossing near Charampa in Bhadrak district on Thursday morning.
The bunch of demands include rail flyover construction at Charmpa station in Bhadrak district and halting of five express trains such as Santragachi-Tirupati Superfast express, Haldia-Chennai Superfast express, etc.
The protest has caused the Chennai-Howrah Coromandel express standing on the tracks.
The protesters voiced, the demands have not been met even after notifying the high level authorities several times.
The absence of flyover near the Charampa Tarini temple level crossing has put people lives in danger. The rail authorities haven’t paid any heed even after being well aware of the plight.
