    .Bandh for last three dyas is not a sollution .I think, public as a mass do not favour this bandh .Some new technique should be followed up.by which the aim of High Court bench in Western ORissa can be possible.Besides High Court bench so many problems in Western Orissa like farmers sucidial case,unemployment problem,poverty inspite of government beneficiries programme,road,drinking water,electricity etc. minimum facilities in remote rural areas of western orissa .Head office of WODCC should be shifted from Bhubaneswar to some where in Western Orissa.Particularly in Sambalpur town a secaret polling should be conducted to achive the percentage of vote for this monthly bandh.Also suggessations from aged learned persons of the city can be taken up .After all Advocates are prestigious and educated mass who can view better than other for the betterment of society.Wishing you all the best for High Court bench in Western Orissa with a question -where the high court bench will be functioned in Western Orissa -Sambalpur/Bargarh/Bolangir/Bhawanipatna/Koraput/Boudh/Sonepur/Sundargrh/Rourkela-an undecided question whose reply is yet to be solved.
