A Mayurbhanj Bandh has been called in protest of a power glitch in Murmu's plan

Locals in the Mayurbhanj district of Odisha have announced a 12-hour bandh on May 15 in protest of the power outage that occurred during President Daroupadi Murmu's speech at the Maharaja Sriram Chandra Bhanja Deo University convocation.

The state administration failed to take any action against individuals in charge of the blackout during the convocation on May 6, according to a statement released by Bhanja Sena on Tuesday. As a result, the Bhanja Sena called for a strike. Additionally, it will demand that individuals responsible for the tragedy face harsh punishment.

According to the organizers of the group, the dawn-to-dusk bandh would start at 6 am on May 15 and last across the Mayurbhanj region. Murmu is regarded as the daughter of the earth and is a native of Rairangpur in Mayurbhanj.

The act, according to the group's head Kalinga Keshari Jena, has brought disgrace onto the whole area. Murmu, who is from the Mayurbhanj area, is being insulted, Jena added. A three-member committee was formed to investigate the event while a university employee was suspended over it, according to authorities.

A inquiry into the incident has also been called by the state government. Additionally, Governor Ganeshi Lal has asked the State Chief Secretary and University Vice-Chancellor for reports on the event.
