Khamakhyanagar, Mar 25: The dawn-to-dusk bandh being observed by the Khamakhyanagar Notified Area Council over several demands brought normal life to a stand-still in the town here on Saturday.
According to sources, the civic body has given the bandh call demanding immediate repairs of NH-53 and the construction of roadside drainage channels from Alatoma to Jiridamali.
While vehicles remained off the road in the town, vehicular traffic between Jajpur and Talcher was also affected as the agitators blocked the road by burning tyres.
Shops and other business establishments remained closed on account of the bandh.
Police forces have been deployed at different places of the town to avoid any untoward incident during the bandh.
