STUDENTS FORM HUMAN CHAIN FOR AGRI VARSITY
Saturday, 24 January 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Demanding setting up of an agriculture university in Balangir, college students, representatives of different organisations and public at large of the town participated in a human chain held here on Friday, which started from the main Post Office to the Government Bus-Stand. “We are staging the human chain to press for fulfilment of our demand for setting up an agriculture university in Balangir.
Ever since merger of Balangir in Odisha State, we have been losing a lot. All the major institutions are being set up outside Balangir. It is satisfying that today people cutting across political lines have come out in support of the demand for setting up an agriculture university here,” said Pramod Mishra of the Krishi Vishwavidyalaya Kriyanusthan Committee.
“Unless the Government fulfils our demand, we will intensify our agitation in future and a delegation will go to Bhubaneswar to meet Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on the issue,” Mishra said. It may be noted that Balangir MP Kalikesh Singh Deo, Rajya Sabha member AU Singh Deo, Balangir MLA Narasingha Mishra, Loisingha MLA Jogendra Behera, Titilagrah MLA Tukuni Sahu and Kantabanji MLA Ayub Khan have also demanded setting up of an agriculture university in Balangir on several occasions earlier.
