Rayagada: The relay hunger strike launched by lawyers in front of the civil court here demanding setting up of a District and Sessions Judge Court here has entered the fifth day on Monday.

"The strike will continue till our only demand has been fulfilled", Y Krishna Rao, President of the Rayagada District Bar Association, spearheading the agitation said.

Though Rayagada was declared a revenue district in 1992, a District Judge Court has not yet been established while the same has been functioning in other districts of the state following creation of new districts in Odisha few years back.

Leaders of different political parties irrespective of their party affiliation, trade union leaders and trader associations have also extended their support to the lawyers cause.
