Odisha government hiding facts as two die in wall collapse during cyclone Titli
Odisha Government seems to be in a mission to hide two casualties in Gajapati district as State officials including Chief Secretary were stating of zero casualties.

Cyclonic storm landfalls along the Odisha Andhra Pradesh border areas and flies towards West Bengal on the morning of October 11. Though no such major devastation in comparison to Phailin Cyclone-2013 has been reported in the state, two districts of Odisha – Gajapati and Ganjam had been affected during this cyclonic storm Titli.

Astonishing to note that the Odisha Government seems to be in a mission to hide the fact of two casualties in Gajapati district as State officials including Chief Secretary were stating of Zero Casualty.  

As per information as many as two deaths occurred due to the wall collapse at a factory in Labanyagada of Gosano block in Gajapati district. One Koushalya Sethi was found dead and her dead remains at the spot till evening of October 11. Her husband Shyamsundar had been brought to the local Public Health Centre at Labanyagada and died at the centre. Another person named Narendra Mallik had been injured and was undergoing treatment.

Irony was that when the state government and top ranking administrative officials were claiming of taking every step they were unable to take the dead bodies from, one from the spot and other from the hospital till evening.

According to sources, the police had reached at the spot in the evening yet they returned stating that the bodies would be taken next morning.
