The Committee had convened the meeting in response to the letter of chief minister Naveen Patnaik to Union Law minister Kapil Sibal requesting him to engage with the Odisha High Court for an early response over the long-standing demands for a permanent High Court bench in Western Odisha.

As decided in the meeting, government offices and courts would be paralysed during the agitation.

The meeting also decided to call a Western Odisha bandh on February 19.
