INCLUDE B’NGIR IN BIJU EXPRESSWAY’
Friday, 12 September 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Balangir MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo has demanded inclusion of Bolangir district in the recently announced Biju Express Highway to boost connectivity. In a letter to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, he said that the exclusion of Balangir district from the Biju Express Highway has spread resentment among people.
The Biju Express Highway is a novel venture by the Naveen Pattnaik Government which aims to create an economic corridor through the KBK and western Odisha. The whole purpose is to spur economic development of the area. As the expressway would pass through one of the most backward regions of the State, ie the KBK region, it would help boost its economy.
