When the Trade Unions linked to Left parties called for a Bharat Bandh and Odisha Congress extended full support to it, everyone recalled the violent incidents in the past.
However, the Commissionerate Police, led by DCP Anup Sahoo assured that no vandalism will be tolerated and people as well public & private properties will be protected.
Not only the Commissionerate Police deployed personnel to prevent any untoward incident, but also DCP was seen leading from the front, educating the protesters.
The Bharat Bandh was completely peaceful – first of its kind in Odisha. The entire team of Commissionerate Police deserve kudos.
