Following is a report from The Pioneer:

The District Bar Association (DBA) of Sambalpur that has been demanding a high court bench in western Odisha, on Wednesday declared that it would also remain in the forefront of the agitation for a separate state.

Since the State Government is callous about the popular demand and intentionally keeping the region underdeveloped for years, the Bar Association has taken such a stand for formation of a new State, said DBA president Pradeep Kumar Bahidar.

He said the DBA would support any non-political organisation that is willing to would launch a movement for a separate state. Since students’ organisations in Balangir and Sambalpur have come forward in support of a separate State, the Sambalpur DBA would extend its support wholeheartedly, he added.

Bahidar, general secretary of DBA Chitta Ranajan Panda and all senior and young lawyers further alleged that the State Government is in a planned manner doing everything to spoil the very future of this region. Water is diverted to industries instead of agriculture and forests are being denuded. Local youth have a little share in employment and businesses opportunities in the new industries. They warned the Government to refrain from the divide-and-rule practice since people are now well aware of this policy of the coastal leadership.

Bahidar also informed that the cease-work stir by lawyers in the last three days of the month would be held from 23rd to 26th of the current month in view of the State-level lawyers’ conference at Rairangpur.

Entry filed under: Athmallik, Balangir, Bargarh, Boudh, Demand by Bar Association, Demand of Koshal state, Deogarh, Jharsuguda, Judicial and Legal Service, Kalahandi, Nuapada, Permanent bench of the High Court, Region watch, Sambalpur, Subarnapur, Sundergarh.
