Dear all,

The backwardness of Western Odisha prominently figured in the meeting – Three years of BJD government in Odisha and UPA Govt at Centre –  organised by Janata Vikas Manch (JVM) on May 22, 2012.

There were two lines of thinking on the reasons for the backwardness of Western Odisha. One opinion was that the policy makers sitting at Bhubaneswar are ignoring the region and the only solution to solve the problem of Western Odisha is to divide the state and form a new state called Kosal state.

Countering this line of thinking, another view was that the division of the state will not solve the problem because Odisha is already small. The upper caste is responsible for the backwardness of the state as they do not allow the SC and ST to develop.

In this backdrop,  Kosal Kranti Dal, a political outfit, is organizing a day long Seminar. The base paper of the Seminar is attached below. The two other files in this regard is attached with this mail.

JVM has been advocating the development of the backward region specially Western and Southern Odisha along with the development of the SC and ST population in the state. We request all to carry forward this debate to solve the problem.
