Bhubaneswar, Oct 31:
In a significant development, Chief Justice of Orissa High Court, A K Goel today invited members of Balangir Bar Association to meet him on November 4 for a discussion on the issue of setting up of a HC bench in Bolangir.
President of Balangir Bar Association Binayak Mishra told newsmen that the Chief Justice had fixed the date in response to the request made to him earlier for a date to discuss the issue. “We will place our demands before him during the discussions,” he said.
