The situation in Orissa’s Kandhamal district, where at least 38 people were killed during communal violence in 2008, is still not normal, the archbishop of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar said Saturday. District officials however denied the claims. “Fifteen months after they were uprooted, thousands still live in makeshift shanties along the road and in the forest,” Archbishop Raphael Cheenath told reporters here. Cheenath also expressed concern at slow pace of reconstruction and rehabilitation of the victims. “At least 4,400 families continue to live in tents, makeshift shelters or the remnants of their damaged houses,” he said.
