AU urges CM Naveen Pattanik to set up second  agriculture university in Bolangir

Balangir 15th October2014
Member of Parliament (RajyaSabha) SriAU singhdeo has urged the chief Minister NaveenPattnaik to set up an agriculture university in the Balangir.In a letter written to Chief Minister Sri Singhdeo points out that Bolangir is one of the backward districts of Odisha and also belongs to the KBK region of the State. The per capita income of the people of Bolangir district is very low. Agriculture, being the main source of income for the people of this district, there is a need for some proactive initiative from the Government for development of Agriculture

Farmers need to have knowledge on use of modern technology to upgrade their farming activity and making it a profitable livelihood. Odisha, having just one Agriculture University, needs at least one more university for Agriculture. The Biju Janata Dal manifesto also promises to set up one Agriculture University in KBK districts. I believe, Bolangir representing the backward and western Odisha districts, is the most suitable place for a second Agriculture University, points out the letter further

Moreover, Bolangir is also backward from the point of view of technical education, while nearby districts have been benefitted with several Government technical colleges.  Kalahandi has Engineering and a Medical College. Sambalpur has a University, Medical College and an Engineering College. Bargarh too has an Engineering College. However, Bolangir still has none, points out the letter further

Hence appropriate initiatives for setting up a second Agriculture University at Bolangir be taken, points out  the letter of AU Singhdeo  further. ================================================
