Western Odisha Bandh over Kosal State

Following is a report from TNIE:

SAMBALPUR:  The supporters of Kosal State have called for Western Odisha bandh on Tuesday. Under the banner of Kosal State Central Co-ordination Committee (KSCCC), they have been demanding separate State comprising 10 districts of Western Odisha besides Athamallik sub-division of Angul district, based on linguistic and cultural affinity.

Chairman of Kosal Kranti Dal (KKD) Pramod Mishra said 103 organisations will participate in the bandh. Explaining that Kosal State is a long pending demand, he said it should have been granted along with formation of Telangana. “If State and Central Governments do not look into the genuine demand, we will intensify the agitation,” he said.

Meanwhile, members of the Sambalpur District Bar Association have decided to stay away from the bandh. According to reports from Nuapada, people have not yet received any information regarding the bandh call and  there would not be much impact of the bandh there.

Bike Rally

Balangir: Balangir unit of Kosal State Coordination Committee took out a motorcycle rally in the town on Monday. Its members called upon the people to participate in the bandh over separate Kosal State demand.

Gopalji Panigrahi of Balangir Action Committee said the fight for Kosal State will continue till the demand is fulfilled by the Government.

Benefits of a small state: centre okays IIT, IIM, 3 central universities for Seemandhra

Following is a PTI report taken from TOI:

NEW DELHI: The HRD ministry has given its nod for an IIT, an IIM and three central universities among other institutes for the Seemandhra region which has witnessed widespread resentment over the Centre’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

The ministry has conveyed its decision to the home ministry which had forwarded representations made by different stakeholders to it earlier in response to the GoM on Telangana inviting suggestions on bifurcation of the state.

The decision would be placed before the GoM for consideration, sources in the Ministry said.

The ministry has also cleared an IISER and an IIIT for the region.

The move is aimed at striking a balance between the two regions – Telangana and Seemandhra – as far as establishment of premier institutes are concerned, though the end objective is to ensure that students derive maximum benefit, they said.

Rough estimate suggests an investment in the range of Rs 6000 to Rs 7000 crore for establishment of the institutes in the Seemandhra region.

The ministry’s decision assumes significance as the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh will leave the Seemandhra region without any of the elite higher educational institutes which are mostly concentrated in Hyderabad in the Telangana region.

HRD minister M M Pallam Raju represents the Kakinanda constituency in Seemandhra.

In their representation, various stakeholders had suggested that all central institutions in Seemandhra should be backed by a bill and all national parties should sign it.

“Most of the highly developed educational institutions are going to the state of Telangana. The Centre should immediately grant the above said institutions and they should come into operation within a year,” the representations said.

Spontaneous bandh in western Odisha gave a hint on the public anger observes Bijay Chaki

Following excerpt is from a TNIE report:

The spontaneous bandh on August 26 in Western Odisha districts over the demand of a separate Koshala state seems to suggest that the tide is turning away from the BJD. Several senior leaders from the area maintained that the Koshala state demand does not have many followers in the area, but the successful bandh gave a hint on the public anger against the ruling party for ignoring the demand of the Western districts always, including a permanent bench of the High Court.
