The members of WOSJAC have staged demonstration  and mass dharana in front of office of the Collector on Monday and again will stage a demonstration in front of office of Revenue Divisional Commissioner (Northern Division) on Tuesday and submit a memorandum.
Besides Sambalpur bandh, all the 182 colleges affiliated to Sambalpur University and other educational institutions across western Orissa will be shut down on February 10 and students would block highways paralysing vehicular movement, he said.

    Central University status to the solitary university of Sambalpur betterly known as Sambalpur University is the need of the hour. I entirely support this cause. I condemn in strongest possible terms the people who are against the cause. Jayadev kar
