Following is a report from the https://www.telegraphindia.com:

Balangir: Local MLA and leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra has slammed the state government for not responding to the long-standing demand of the local people for the establishment of an agriculture university here.

Talking to newspersons here on Sunday evening, Mishra said that the state government had taken a decision in 2014 to set up an agriculture university in the Koraput-Balangir-Kalahandi (KBK) region. Ever since, the people of Balangir have been demanding that the agriculture university be set up in Balangir.

“The people of Balangir have been demanding the agriculture university for the last four years. I have also personally supported the demand and have contributed my bit,” he said. Mishra said that several local outfits have hit the street demanding the agriculture university. “At various times, the local people have launched protest drives demanding the university here. But the government is not responding to the demands of the people,” he said.

Mishra said he had written to chief minister Naveen Patnaik on June 28 requesting him to take up the project at the earliest. “I have written to the chief minister recently to honour the demand of the people of Balangir and take steps to set up the university here,” he said.

Mishra said that he had also requested the chief minister to set up a government engineering college in the region. “Balangir doesn’t have any government engineering college. I have requested the government to set up an engineering college here,” he said.

He has also urged upon the government to take over the Balangir Law College. “There is no government law college anywhere in Odisha. The law college here has adequate infrastructure. It is high time the government takes it over so that it becomes the state’s first government law college,” he said.
