Road blockades following the Kalinga Nagar firing incident at Badbil in Keonjhar district have seriously affected cargo traffic to Paradip port. Sources in Paradip Port Trust said that transportation of iron ore and other minerals from Sukinda valley through Daitari-Paradip express highway has been totally stopped for more than 14 days.

The truck traffic has reduced by half as only 1000 trucks were carrying iron ore to the port instead of 2000 earlier. The blockade had affected the transport of iron ore to the Paradip port as trucks were forced to make a detour of 25 km to skirt the troubled spot.
