“Recently during Eid and Rakhi festival Jharsuguda District administration had already imposed a Shutdown during the weekend before the festival, but after local pleaded the administration to give some relaxation , Jharsuguda District Administration had given only two hours relaxation at a very short notice , which was not so fruitful. As Nuakhai is one of the most widely celebrated festival of the western Odisha, We demand Jharsuguda District Administration to kindly give relaxation, so that people can easily celebrate the festival ” said Pintu Padhee, resident of Jharsuguda
