Following is a report from expressbuzz.com:

SAMBALPUR: Members of the Koshal Kranti Dal (KKD) have resolved to hold Koshal Chad Maha Samabesh (Quit Koshal mega convention) on the lines of Quit India Movement on April 1 at Sambalpur town demanding separate Koshal state.

Speaking to mediapersons yesterday, KKD president Pramod Mishra said similar conventions will be held across the region to intensify the stir. Mishra also threatened to oppose exhibition of Oriya films, operas, CDs, literature and imposition of Oriya culture in the region. Castigating the industries in the region for initiating development activities in other parts of Orissa rather than in the area, he warned the industrial houses to quit the region by 2014 if they don’t rally behind separate state demand.

He also advised the peoples’ representatives to change their attitude for the sake of motherland and asked them to raise the separate state issue in both Assembly and Parliament. Disclosing that many politicians cutting across party lines have evinced interest in joining KKD, Mishra said that inhabitants of Koraput, Phulbani, Nabrangpur and Rayagada have also expressed their desire to join the proposed Koshal state. He even asked the people to enrol their mother tongue as ‘Koshali language’ during the census process and urged them to join the movement.

    This is nothing but your nightmare.You wants to make fool to the people of Orissa.Now you are attaching the term Kosali and trying to prove our beautiful Sambalpuri Oriya language from the mainstream Oriya.

    As the language of Awadh(of Uttar Pradesh) is known as Kosali and better known as North Kosali and the language of Chatisgarh known as South Kosali as Chatisgarh is original South Kosal not the Western Orissa region.

    Yes,as a history student i know the Western Orissa region was under the rule of South Kosal kings of Chatisgarh for some time.But originally this part of Orissa was known as Mahakantara(Kalahandi),Hirakhand & Oddiyan(Sambalpur),Odra desha(entire Western & central and southern hill tracts of Orissa) and Yamagarta Mandala,Bhanja Mandala and Bonai Mandala of Bhaumakara rulers.

    Sambalpur is one of the most valuable dialects of Oriya language as other dialects.The people of this region belongs to Odia race.

    This is only your political agenda to Divide and Rule.

      No my Learned Friend,it is Not so.
      Parrtly U R Right, but mostly Wrong.
      There is No Language as of now, which claims itself as Koshali,but the present Sambalpuri-Koshali Language.
      A lot of water has flown down adducing that Sambalpuri_koshali is a full-fledge Language & Not a dialect of any Language as it was made out to be.Recognised by Sambalpur University as a separate langyage,S.U. has even a Diploma Course in Sambalpuri-Koshali language.Aprops history,Karundya,Mahakantara,Koshala,Hirakhanda are only names at different times in History.But the pertinent point is now a Nationalism in the name of Koshal has already in full swing.Saga of Exploitation & criminal betreyal by the so called Coastalites of the Koshal region is Not Unknown to anybody.The Movement is Not against the Odiyas, but for the self-determination of Koshali people in the comity os Indian States. Let Justice prevail.

    Sir, I fully support your movement.I’ve felt the hatred feeling of eastern orissa people for the western orissa people.They are taking the advantage of everything from employment to administration.Exploiting our people & making money. Leaving our people in starvation & using our natural resources by setting up factories & bringing coastal orissa people.

    Odisha is small state now. Ancient period orissa proud of india. I came to know kosal kalinga state people were bavory. Allways hindi brodcast in odisha television radio. Is not it insult for odisha? In kosal region people some website found some migratory kings family says hindi is easy for them. And they prevent govt help education. And adviced people for reading hindi. It is popular known as tribal people cannot be accepted. About tamilnadu has two regional party and various language but tamil. Our fore father we are oriya not hindi but who said about hindi.

    Hon’ble Chief Minister Of Orissa, kindly read Orissa history, actual oriyan tribal does not say hindi is easy for them. And tribal ancient people were great auther oriya litrature. Some migrant king and their servant prevent govt aid. Discorage for learn oriya to tribal people. Tribal are representative lord Jagannath. Kindly teach tribal for their ancient culture.

    i am Bibhuti Prasad Nayak from Jeypore (Koraput) presently staying in Hyderabad.. i think the government of Odisha have always cheated the people of Western and Southern Odisha.. All development works are being carried on at the Coastal districts. The people of Coastal districts never treated us as Odias.. So a separate Koshal state should be formed with 10 districts of Western Odisha and koraput, nabarangpur, malkangiri, phulbani, etc
    or else we , the people of Southern Odisha will join Andhra Pradesh

    or else we the people of south odisha (koraput, rayagada, malkangiri, ganjam, gajapati) will fight and make us a part of Andhra Pradesh
