Denizens of Balangir under the banner of an Agriculture University Kriyanusthan Committee on Wednesday staged an agitation in front of Government offices in the town demanding setting up of an Agriculture University in Balangir. The committee members with the support of several organisations of the town also threatened to boycott observance of the Utkal Divas on April 1 if their demand is not met. The picketers shut down almost all the Government offices, including banks, post offices and Civil Court. However, business establishments remained open while school, colleges and other educational institutions functioned normally.
“The treaty of merger Balangir district with the State was signed in1948. At that time, the State Government had assured to take steps to ensure all-round development of the district. However, even after six decades, Balangir is exposed to negligence,” said committee member Promod Mishra. With a vast agrarian base and agriculture training centre here, Balangir would be an appropriate place for setting up of an Agriculture University, Mishra added.
