Following is a report from The Pioneer:

Activists of the Kosal Kranti Dal (KKD) on Sunday held rail roko all over western Odisha to press their demand for a separate State of Kosal comprising the western districts and Baudh and Athmallik.

Train services were severely affected and passengers were thrown into immense troubles, railway sources said. The activists totally stopped the goods trains everywhere, it added.

“By this, we warn both State and Centre to take an immediate decision for a Kosal State without which the development of this region would be totally impossible,” said president of Sambalpur district unit of KKD Upendra Mahapatra.

The KKD activists also stopped trains at Balangir, Kesinga and Rourkela stations. “We will have a State at any cost for the freedom of this region from Odisha,” said party president Pramod Mishra. He also strongly criticised the coastal region leaders for their ‘step-motherly’ attitude towards the western region.
