Bhubaneswar, Nov. 26 -- Bhubaneswar/Rourkela: Vehicular traffic was partially affected in several places of Odisha including Bhubaneswar and Rourkela as the members of central trade unions staged road blockade as part of their 24-hour nationwide strike on Thursday.

As per reports, members of Odisha Construction Workers' Union (CITU) and several other organisations blocked road on the national highway near Acharya Vihar in Bhubaneswar following which dozens of vehicles including night buses were seen stranded on both sides of the road.

"The central trade unions are protesting the anti-worker, anti-farmer and anti-national policies of Modi government," said an agitating member of Odisha Construction Workers' Union in Bhubaneswar.
