In many areas, including Jatni and Khordha, the Congress workers stopped the train services too. All schools, colleges and business establishments across the state, remained closed.

In Bhubaneswar, the party just held a symbolic protest and the normal life was not affected. The Congress has threatened to intensify the agitation if the Chief Minister does not step down.
