BHUBANESWAR: Continuing their opposition to National Mineral Policy-2008, members of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on Thursday tried to enter regional branch of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and local head office of State Bank of India (SBI).

BJD leaders entered the prohibited zone in groups and started raising slogans against UPA Government for ignoring Orissa and other mineral-rich states for formulation of NMP.

They were led by State Women and Child Development Minister Pramilla Mallick and Mayor of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) Mihir Mohanty. They also showed placards.
