Orissa government's claim that the riot-hit Kandhmal district is back to normal has taken a beating yet again. The government has denied a six-member CBCI delegation from Delhi to enter the area. The delegation also includes CPM MP Sitaram Yechury. After an hour-long meeting with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday, the leaders were told that they could not be allowed into Kandhmal for a few days.
