Urdu poet bags Gangadhar National Award

Following is a report from The Pioneer:

On the 43rd foundation day of the Sambalpur University, famous Urdu poet Dr A Mohammad Shahryar was conferred with the Gangadhar National Award on Friday.

Speaking on the occasion, the poet said, “In the context of the present scenario, it is not wise to be escapist rather to accumulate energy and courage to face every situation. This would show way to live life. Literature gives us the ability to explore the vast horizon before us.”

University Vice-Chancellor Arun Kumar Pujari conferred the award to the poet. The university also honoured Odia poet Saubhagyabanta Maharana. The Vice-Chancellor appealed to students and teachers to utilise their knowledge for the benefit of the common men who remain neglected for decades in spite of scientific and technical progress.

Central University status for Sambalpur University, Orissa, India demanded

Following is a report from The Pioneer:

Hundreds of students of western Odisha gathered in the Biju Patnaik auditorium of Sambalpur University (SU) to reiterate their demand for Central University status for the university as it caters to the needs of all backward districts of the State including two KBK districts.

“The university is a victim of regular negligence, the result being that the vast region remains educationally backward also,” alleged president of the Sambalpur University Students’ Union Padmanava Mishra, who presided over the meeting.

The students mainly assembled to protest the negligence if the university by the State Government. They formed an 11-member committee with representatives from different colleges to chalk out their future course of action. “May it be teaching or non-teaching staff or even development of infrastructure, this university is always lagging behind and can’t meet the requirement of the modern day education at par with other developed universities,” Mishra alleged further.

Former MP Balgopal Mishra presented the history of the “step-motherly attitude” over six decades resulting in the backwardness of western Odisha. “In this context, the demand of the students for Central University status is justified,” he said. Former MP Bhabani Shankar Hota blamed it on the faulty education system in the State that goes against the interest of western Odisha.

Students demand Central status for Sambalpur university, Orissa

Following is a report from The Times of India:

SAMBALPUR: Students of western Orissa on Tuesday reiterated their demand for Central university status to Sambalpur University. They were taking part in a convention held on the university campus, where members of the university students’ union threatened of a massive agitation in western Orissa in support of their demand. 

Nearly 500 student leaders and representatives of various colleges of the region took part in the convention and criticized the state government for its “apathy” towards improving the infrastructure and education facilities in the region. 

The students’ convention, organized under the leadership of the university students’ union, has formed a 11-member action committee to decide the future course of action of the proposed agitation. 

“We have decided to start a massive agitation in western Orissa. We have long been asking for Central University Status to Sambalpur University. Although the state government had agreed on principle to confer the same to this University and recommended the Centre in this regard, nothing happened. We have nothing but the state government’s lack of initiative to blame for it,” president of the union Padmanav Mishra said.

“We see no other option but to agitate, with hopes that the government takes notice,” Mishra added while addressing the students. 

Sambalpur University has a total of 180 colleges under it. Established in 1964, it is the only university in the state that covers the largest area of 11 districts in the region.

The Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government wrote to the Centre, supporting the justifications behind the demand. Again in 2008k, the demand was raised by the students and teachers again, following the Centre’s declaration to establish a central university in Orissa. But that was set up in Koraput.
