BJD against formation of Koshal state:AU Singh Deo

Following is a report from The Pioneer:

The BJD on Saturday made it clear that it is dead against any division of the State. “I am against creation of Kosal,” said senior BJD leader and Minister AU Singh Deo, who represents the region where the Kosal agitation is underway in the wake of the Telangana issue.

Addressing the BJD foundation day function here, Singh Deo said the demand for a Kosal State gained momentum as the past Congress Governments had neglected the interests of the western Odisha. “They had only allotted Rs 1 crore (for the region’s development). But our Government gave Rs 50 crore for the first time to the Western Odisha Development Council (WODC) and then enhanced it to Rs 100 crore,” he said, adding that during the Naveen Patnaik regime many developmental works have been undertaken in the western region.

However, he urged the Chief Minister to take more steps for socio-economic growth of western Odisha.
