SDM Baria Suresh Pal, CO Baria Chandrakesh Singh, BDO Baria Gajendra Pratap Singh as well as the police force of Revathi police station were present. 4 self-help groups applied for shops. It was decided to vote between the 2 groups if there is no consensus for the shop of Durjanpur. Officials said that voting will be done by those who have Aadhaar or any other identity card.
Although one group had an identity card, the other group had no ID. A dispute between the two sides started over this. Seeing the worsening of the situation, the officials left the postponement of the meeting. The Revathi police present on the spot engaged in persuading both sides and calm the dispute.
