At places like Balangir, Odisha govt. should invest more on renewable energy production

Dear honorable CM of Odisha,
It is reported in The Samaj that Jharsuguda will be the highest electrical power producing town of India:
Is this a good thing for Jharsuguda which has already high concentration of heavy industries? The western Orissa will be full of thermal powerplants as many are coming up at Birmaharajpur of Sonepur, Titlagarh of Balangir, one at Kalahandi and one at Sundergarh. The temp of western Orissa will increase many fold.
Titlagarh is known in the country for recording highest temperature during summer. Places like Titlagarh needs more non-polluting industries like solar power plants. I belive in such places the govt. should invest more on solar power units.
Also, putting all the industries in the western Orissa and establishing most of the HRD institutes in the coastal belt is not at all a good idea. It is surprising that various places of western Odisha like Balangir do not have any state govt. technical institutes viz. engg/medical college or central govt. instituts.
This needs to corrected.
Best regards,

    Yes, mr.sanjib was right.. I think western odisha needs to focus on educational institutions not industrialisations. Titlagarh have no any state/central level educational institutions. Titlagarh is a railway junction point and have a better connectivity to other parts of odisha. So any medical/engineering institutions should be established or any management institutions also be considered.
