Following is a report from The Hindu:

BHUBANESWAR: Hundreds of people from western Orissa here on Wednesday staged a demonstration demanding separate Koshal State by carving out 11 districts and one sub-division from Orissa.

Encouraged by Union government’s approval to separate Telangana State recently, agitators under the banner of Koshal Kranti Dal (KKD) submitted a memorandum addressing the Governor in support of a separate State.

“Economically, Koshal region has richest deposit of minerals like coal, bauxite, mica, iron ore, lime, phosphorous, manganese and has potential rivers including Mahanadi, Tel, Suktel, Ong, Indravati and vast hydro electricity ability,” said KDD president Pramod Mishra here. He said the region was endowed with richest forest wealth and Gandhamardan mountain.
