Bhubaneswar: Traders and roadside vendors opposing the opening of Reliance Fresh outlets in Orissa on Saturday formed a “suicide” squad.

“As many as 100 youth today joined the squad as they prefer to die while fighting rather than facing starvation,” All-Orissa Roadside Vendors and Small Shop Owners Association president Pratap Sahu said.

Reports said the vendors formed the squad soon after a meeting. — PTI
