Bhubaneswar, Sep 9:
The Odisha Krushak Mahasabha (OKM) has called upon the activists of Kosal Kranti Dal (KKD) to demand two sessions of the State Assembly to be conducted in western Odisha.
“Since the number of MPs of the proposed Kosal state area is six out of a total of 21 seats for Odisha, their voice will not be heard in the Parliament due to lack of majority,” said OKM president and former MLA Bibhudhendra Pratap Das in a release here on Sunday.
Maintaining that strong political leadership and willpower will take western Odisha to a new height, Das urged the KKD activists to intensify their agitation for two Assembly Sessions in western Odisha in order to ensure rapid development of the backward districts.
Das said when he was an MLA between 1980 and 1985 he had appealed to the House to have only one Assembly session in western Odisha but in vain.
