Locals of the victim lady, who had succumbed to her illness of Swine flu yesterday, today staged a sit-in-demonstration to draw notice of the concern authority over the kind of discrimination being met by the children and local people at the aftermath of the dead of the victim lady. The sit-in-demonstration organized by Locality Implement Committee and Society for Women Empowerment was staged today at Brahmapur Bachaspati Leikai. Speaking to reporters, a member of the organizers said that due to proper awareness of swine flu, people of the locality particularly the children and near and dear ones of the victim lady are facing severe form of discrimination after the news of her dead.
