Bhubaneswar, Feb 19:
Four Notified Area Councils in southern Odisha – Sunabeda, Malkangiri, Koraput and Umerkote- will soon be upgraded to municipalities.
This was announced by chief minister Naveen Patnaik during a visit to Chitrakonda today.
The announcement is being seen as an attempt by the Chief Minister and ruling party supremo to woo the voters in this Maoist infested area ahead of the coming elections.
