“Since several months now,” says a protesting woman, “we are without ration.”

Raising slogans against the authorities, the residents threatened to intensify protests if their demand wasn’t immediately heeded upon.

Fearing spillover, a posse of police party arrived on the spot, but even then the residents couldn’t disperse. It was only after a official concerned arrived on the spot vowing to address the grievances on war-footing that the residents dispersed peacefully.
