JAN AKROSH: SEPARATE CONG DEMOS IN B’NGIR
Tuesday, 29 November 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The protest by members of the Balangir District Congress against demonetization at two different places has brought the factionalism in the unit to the fore.
While one group led by District Congress Committee president Bhagaban Bagarti, Renuka Patra, Bidhu Bhushan Tripathy and others staged a dharna before the collectroate, another group led by Samrendra Mishra, son of Leader of Opposition (LoP) Narsingha Mishra, Biren Mishra, Laxman Meher, Sudhir Parischha and Sudam Sahu staged a dharna before State Bank of India main branch office.
“The demonetization move by the Central Government has affected the common man the most. The AICC has given a call to observe Jan Akrosh Divas. The AICC is observing it at Delhi and PCC is observing at State level, while the DCC at district and block congress at block level,” said Balangir DCC president Bagarti.
Asked to comment on another unit of Congress, Town Congress unit led by Samrendra Mishra, Bagarti said the AICC has instructed to observe the programme at all levels and there is nothing wrong with the stir by the Town Congress as it is also a unit of the party. He, however, denied that it was factionalism in the DCC.
“The Town Congress has received communication from the PCC and we are staging protest dharna before the main branch of the SBI against the demonetization by the Modi Government,” Mishra said, adding that the dharna by the DCC was “just a coincidence”.
However, political observers here feel that there are two factions in Balangir Congress. While one group backs LoP Mishra, another backs former Congress MP from Balangir Sarat Pattnaik.

The Kosal agitation is going on slowly here. We do not find involvement of women, lecturers and students in Kosal movement, said spokesperson for Telangana Joint Action Committee and State president of Telangana Lecturers’ Forum Dr K Venkatswamy.
“We fought for a separate Telagnana in a democratic way. We would share our experience and propel the stir here,” he said. Venkatswamy, who was at an ideological camp of Kosal State Coordination Committee to impart training to members, said this to the mediapersons here.
The agitation for separate Kosal State has entered 18th year .The process to start caderisation of Kosal movement has begun. To build up more cadres and make them self- sufficient, we have invited leaders of agitations in other States and in this process, leaders from Telengana have arrived today, said All Kosal State Coordination Committee president Promod Mishra.
In forthcoming days, leaders from different agitations would be invited, Mishra added.
Asked to comment on the shortcomings of less participation of students, women and other category of people in the Kosal agitation as pointed out by Prof Venkatswamy, Mishra said it was just the beginning. “We are on the process to organize training camps in block level to build up cadres for the agitation for a separate Kosal State,” he said.

MAOIST SANYASI SURRENDERS BEFORE B’NGIR COPS Sunday, 20 November 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar 1
MAOIST SANYASI SURRENDERS BEFORE B’NGIR COPS
Sunday, 20 November 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
A hardcore Maoist, Sanyasi Sagaria, surrendered before Balangir SP Ashis Singh and CRPF 189 Battalion in-charge Jitendra Kumar here on Friday.
Sanyasi, a resident of Nagphenea village under Tureikela police station, was forced to join the Maoist organisation in 2005 by Maoist cadre Sanjeeb. He worked in Bargarh-Balangir-Mahas Amund division and was operating in Tureikela, Lathore and Khaprakhol Police station area. He was collecting information on contractors, labour sardars and movement of security forces, said Singh at a Press meet here.
The SP said Sanyasi had been handling a 12-bore gun and, during his stay in the party, he had met some senior party cadres of the division. He left the party due to mental and physical harassment meted out to him by senior cadres, said Singh. He was also involved in the recent exchange of fire with security forces in Chandali Reserve Forest on August 13, Singh informed, adding “Sanyasi will get all the benefits as per the Government guidelines.”
However, Sanyasi didn’t reply to mediapersons who wanted to know how he became a Maoist and how he was being tortured in the Maoist camp.
