Following is a report from The Pioneer:

In the aftermath of Telengana and a favourable decision of the Government of India; the students of Sambalpur University are now up in the arms for a separate State of Koshal. The demand for a State is not new here and after participation of the students it will take a new turn, political observers feel.

The students of Sambalpur University boycotted classes on Tuesday and sat in dharna with placards in the hands demanding a separate State. “All the successive State Governments have been showing step motherly attitude to this part and separate State is the only solution for development of western Odisha,” said general secretary of the Koshal Students Organisation Jayadev Kar.

“Assurances were given to people of this vast region when Odisha came into being in 1936. But this region was intentionally kept neglected,” alleged the Sambalpur University Students Union president Padmanav Mishra. “We will spread this as people’s movement in all parts of western Odisha,” Mishra said. “Why should a region with vast resources remain backward in all fronts,” he asked.
