Bhubaneswar, Nov 20 (UNI) Orissa is having severe border disputes with neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal over 68 villages, Revenue Minister Manmohan Samal told the state Assembly today.

Replying to a Opposition's question, Mr Samal said the state, however, had no border conflict with Chhattisgarh.
