The protesters alleged that despite repeated requests to those at the helm of affairs it seems that all genuine requests fell to deaf ears.  "We have knocked all the doors in District Administration asking them to appoint BDO but still there seems no ray of hope we are made to suffer all our developmental works,” the protesting Sarpanchs said. The traffic movement in the area also came to a halt after the road was blocked following which police rushed to the spot.Protesters appealed State Governor to look into the matter on priority.(KNO)
