Angul: The agitating villagers affected by the clash at the project site of Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) at Nisha on January 25 have called a dawn-to-dusk bandh on Tuesday, demanding immediate fulfillment of their 20 point charter of demands.

Expressing his dissatisfaction over the result of the tripatite talk on Friday, in which the plant authorities agreed to fulfil 13 demands of the agitators, Sanatana Sahu, the Secretary of Khyatigrasta Praja Sangh, said on Sunday, “We stick to our decision to continue the strike as we are not satisfied with the result of the tripartite talk as many of our demands still remain unsolved.”

Sahu was critical that that even as the JSPL authorities have been publicly offering to help the injured villagers, help of any kind is yet to reach them.

Meanwhile the plant authorities in Sunday released Rs 10 lakh for the treatment of the injured villagers.

The Jindal plant authorities have also appealed to the agitating villagers to engage in more talks as agreed in the last tripatite meeting to sort out the rest of the issues.
