Even though elections to the Panchyati Raj bodies are seven to eight months away, political parties have begun gearing up for the poll battle in Balangir district.

The newly-formed political outfit, Kosal Kranti Dal (KKD), seems to be ahead of others in this respect. At its central general council meeting held on Saturday at Sonepur, 50 km from here, the KKD urged people to vote for those candidates who are supporting and demanding a separate Kosal State.

The KKD would participate in the forthcoming panchayat elections with the agenda of formation of Kosal State, said party president Pramod Mishra. A committee has been formed to prepare the details of the party strategy and manifesto, he informed.

Attended by its representatives from the districts of Subarnapur, Boudh, Sundargarh, Jharsugda and Sambalpur and other parts of the western Odisha, the meeting also decided to support the agitation against corruption, scrapping of setting up of the proposed power plants at Titilagarh and Birmaharajpur and observation of Kosali Mother Tongue Day on February 21 next year.
