Following is a report from The Pioneer:

Hundreds of students of western Odisha gathered in the Biju Patnaik auditorium of Sambalpur University (SU) to reiterate their demand for Central University status for the university as it caters to the needs of all backward districts of the State including two KBK districts.

“The university is a victim of regular negligence, the result being that the vast region remains educationally backward also,” alleged president of the Sambalpur University Students’ Union Padmanava Mishra, who presided over the meeting.

The students mainly assembled to protest the negligence if the university by the State Government. They formed an 11-member committee with representatives from different colleges to chalk out their future course of action. “May it be teaching or non-teaching staff or even development of infrastructure, this university is always lagging behind and can’t meet the requirement of the modern day education at par with other developed universities,” Mishra alleged further.

Former MP Balgopal Mishra presented the history of the “step-motherly attitude” over six decades resulting in the backwardness of western Odisha. “In this context, the demand of the students for Central University status is justified,” he said. Former MP Bhabani Shankar Hota blamed it on the faulty education system in the State that goes against the interest of western Odisha.
