It may be noted that since Monday a rumour has started to make round in parts of the State that there would be drastic shortage of salt in Odisha.

On Tuesday, long queues were seen in front of godowns of salt wholesalers and police had to manage the crowd. Two cases related to selling of salt at high price were registered at Bada Bazar police station and four traders were arrested.
